Video: M83 "Midnight City"
- Words: Patric Fallon
It's no wonder why M83's music videos are basically full-fledged film productions: Only a real cinematic experience could properly match the French artist's widescreen pop music. The fact is truer than ever with this clip for the lead single from the breathtaking, XLR8R Pick'ed Hurry Up, We're Dreaming double LP, "Midnight City." Directed by Fleur & Manu, the piece is apparently "a tribute to Village of the Damned, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and other akiras [meaning intelligent or 'gifted' children]." Kids with mystical powers, low-contrast film footage, explosive synth music... Never change, M83.
