Yes, Anthony Gonzales is finally back with the sixth album of his currently one-man band M83. And it seems that ’80s kitsch of his ground-breaking Saturdays=Youth stayed in him more intensely than one would guess. Although Gonzales declared that his then unnamed new album would be very, very epic and very orchestrated, the first teaser from promisingly titled Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is more fun than the promised epic-nature.
Prepare yourself for hands-in-the-air chorus, verse-chorus-bridge structure and a big dose of analogue synthesizers. That’s what Midnight City sounds like: huge shout-along refrain which can be simply described as joyous. Obviously, this song is unashamed and honest expression of inner happiness and joy. These shiny feelings are even strengthened by the saxophone stormy improvisation in its last minute. Synthy, shoegaze, moonshine pop is M83’s specialty – I believe the entire two-discs Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is going to be similarly anthemic. After all, there’s still something in this world to be thrilled about. By the way, Midnight City is offered for free download on M83’s official page.
