video: m83 – ‘Midnight City’
M83 have a new double LP called Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming out on Naive/Mute Records. Check out the spooky sci-fi video for the album’s first single ‘Midnight City’.
I like the intensity of those recurring synth-screams that augment the chorus every time it comes around. And the whole arrangement and song structure has a really strong Depeche Mode vibe (label mates).
