According to Wikipedia M83 is a “musical act” that” was formed by French Musician Anthony Gonzalez in 2001. The name comes from a spiral galaxy, Messier 83. The best description of the band can be found right in the Wikipedia site.
The song featured today, Midnight City, has been called by many not only the best song of the summer, but by some the best song of the year. The song has been featured in numerous advertisements, as well as a number of television specials including the HBO special 24/7, about the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers.
Today’s live performance is taken from their appearance on Carson Daly in 2011.
Thanks for listening.
