M83 are considered France’s latest musical success story, but little known is that before 2011’s breakthrough record, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, M83’s main man, Anthony Gonzalez, had been plying his trade under the same moniker for a decade.

In fact, last year’s critical and commerical smash was his sixth long player – good things come to those who wait, it would appear.

After October’s release of the extraordinarily ambitious double album – a sprawling, eclectic epic in the very truest sense, veering from synth rock and saxophone solos to soft, electro chill-out – M83 came to the UK for a show at Heaven. This time they’re at a far more fitting venue in west London’s Empire.

Combining electro with a distinctly Nineties-flavoured shoegazing indie-guitar aesthetic, M83 have always walked a distinct musical path. Since the departure of fellow founder Nicolas Fromageau, though, Gonzalez (with help from brother Yann) has forged a new and alternative direction, taking the syths, guitars and often low-in-the-mix vocals towards a more ambient composition. Remixing everyone from nu-metal survivors Deftones to Brit indie stars Bloc Party and Placebo to electro-pop minx Goldfrapp, M83’s influence is now far and wide.

There is the sense now, though, that Gonzalez’s critically acclaimed efforts are getting the commercial recognition – and expectant fans – they deserve, with M83 poised to finally deliver their contrary, electro-rock to the masses.
