Completely the trilogy of videos from M83 & Fleur & Manu is, "WAIT!" A remarkable and visually stunning project. 'Wait' is taken from the flawless album 'Hurry Up, We're Dreaming.' Which coincidentally is still one of my favorite records last year (and continued throughout this entire year). The video was directed by Fleur & Manu & made in conjunction with The Creators Project, a partnership between Intel and Vice. Watch the new video below, as well as the previous ones.

"Wait," the last entrant into the M83 + Fleur and Manu video series is one of Hurry Up, We're Dreaming 's more subdued less well-known tracks. Full of splendid imagery, the video follows "Midnight City" and "Reunion" through the spacey realm of childlike whimsy. Check it out below.
M83 released the third and final video of the epic trilogy directed by Fleur & Manu. "Wait" follows clips for "Midnight City" and "Reunion" off the very successful 2011 LP Hurry Up, We're Dreaming . Just like the previous two, this one includes kids with supernatural abilities, powerful imagery, and the uncanny ability to make you feel the wonder had as a child. You can find all three clips below. "Reunion" "Midnight City"
Nearly a year after the release of Hurry Up, We're Dreaming , arguably the best album of 2011, M83 have released this utterly fantastic music video for "Steve McQueen." Direc tors Balthazar Auxietre and Sylvain Derosne utilize a plethora of stop-motion animation, giving real life to the inanimate dream-like objects in a child's science experiment. A lot of what made music videos so groundbreaking in the 80s and 90s isn't necessarily gone, but dissolved in an [...]
M83 just announced the release of their next single 'Steve McQueen' which will be out via Mute November 27. Celebrating this exhilarating track the band decided to draw from their biggest inspiration and support system-the fans themselves. Anthony Gonzalez selected French Director Balthazar Auxietre and Animator Sylvain Derosne’s (who has also collaborated with Spike Jonze) unique vision [...]

A direct video sequel for M83 's "Midnight City," the newest video from directors Fleur & Manu has to be Akira inspired in some form (with an Adam Yauch tribute Easter egg thrown in as well). Check it out below. Another future Lollapalooza alum, The Walkmen , just released their seventh studio album yesterday, along with a video for the title track "Heaven," directed by Alex Southam. Despite the fact that Andrew Bird 's latest album, Break It [...]
M83 released another compelling visual companion for the latest single, Reunion , off 2011's breakout album, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming . The video, directed by Fleur & Manu, is a continuation of the story being told in the Midnight City clip with kids having out of this world abilities battling the bad guys. Watch it below. MP3: M83 - Reunion (Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. remix)
Click here to view the embedded video. M83 took the world by storm with the single 'Midnight City', which is one of the best indie tracks of the past year. Epic dream pop like 'Midnight City' deserves an equally cinematic and daring video. I so incredibly excited that music videos are becoming 3 or minute long cinematic affairs. The freedom of the internet has lifted the muzzle on creativity and access, while blowing open the amount of exposure a group and filmmakers can get from a music vide. I am in love with every [...]

New Video: M83 “Midnight City” Stone cold J-A-A-A-A-A-M-M-M-M-M.
Click here to view the embedded video. I am in love with every single part of this video, beautifully shot, beautifully paced, and the animation is stunning. I love how music videos are becoming 3 or minute long cinematic affairs, the freedom of the internet has lifted the muzzle on creativity and access. M83 took the interwebs by storm with 'Midnight City' and have just dropped their debut LP, Hurry Up, We're Still Dreaming . I am sure the dreamy, super hero inspired music video will only help people become [...]
I got a little bit of grief when I stated that M83 's " Midnight City " was one of my favorite tracks of 2011, but I still stand by it. I'm even happier, now, to see it put to video. Very X-Men/New Mutants inspired visuals. A group of "talented" kids escape imprisionment and make their way into the big city. Not too long ago, M83 digitally released the Midnight City Remix EP , which features remixes by Trentemøller, Big Black [...]
"Midnight City" is the first single out of Anthony Gonzalez aka M83's upcoming "Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming". The double-album was produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, Mars Volta, Goldfrapp, Nine Inch Nails) and features guest appearances by Zola Jesus, Brad Laner (Medicine) and Morgan Kibby. Anthony notes: "I think it is a reflection of my [...]
m83 - we own the sky [winners of the video competition young replicant ] http://feeds.feedburner.com/Wo ngiesMusicWorld
Saturdays=Youth by M83 has turned out to be one of my most consistent spins from all the albums released last year. I loved how the album's overall feel changes with the season and your mood. Anyway, M83 just released a new video for We Own the Sky , directed by Young Replicant for a video contest. Given the overall 80s teen movie feel of this album, the video fittingly ends with a kiss Sixteen Candles style... [...]
