M83: The Evolution Of The Band’s Sound


About the Video

M83's Anthony Gonzalez chats about the evolution of the band's sound as reflected in his most recent release, the critically acclaimed Hurry Up, We're Dreaming (2011), and how the album's theme of childhood memories relates to the tale of Fleur & Manu's music video trilogy.

He also touches on the band's recent video for "Steve McQueen" and the use of M83's music in film trailers for Cloud Atlas and Curt Morgan's The Art Of Flight.
