M83 – currently made up of only original member Anthony Gonzalez – released their last album, ‘DSVII’, in 2019.

Way back in 2011, a three and a half star review of ‘Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming’, saw NME call the release “A grandiose double-album paean to childhood dreaming that only occasionally needs the naughty step.

“Use your heart, you might rediscover your own absentminded childhood and an album full of hidden pleasures. “
