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).

The video is directed by Fleur & Manu (Division/Les Télécréateurs). Stream the rest of the album over at Disco Naivete.

“This video is a tribute to Village of the Damned, Close encounters of the Third kind and other Akiras”
