M83 is an electronic music group that started as Anthony Gonzalez's solo music project in Antibes, France. Back in the early 2000s, Gonzalez used a synth to record his first demo, which caught the attention of an independent record label, Goom Records. In 2003, Gonzalez released his debut album as M83 while he was still a student in college. Eventually, M83 evolved from a solo project into a full-fledged band, and they spent several years garnering a devoted fan base throughout France. In 2008, M83 released their fifth studio album, "Saturdays = Youth," which helped push M83 into the electronic music spotlight thanks to popular songs like "Graveyard Girl" and "We Own the Sky." Following this successful album, M83 embarked on tours with Kings of Leon, The Killers and Depeche Mode. Finally, M83 was on the brink of a major international breakout.
In 2011, M83 released what became their breakthrough single, "Midnight City," which saturated alternative radio and became one of the most popular electronic hits of the year. Suddenly, M83 had become one of the most recognizable names in electronic music, and the band capitalized on their momentum with the release of tracks like "Outro" and "Wait." To date, M83 has released sevens studio albums, and they have achieved significant success on the music charts with their past two albums, "Hurry Up, We're Dreaming" (2011) and "Junk" (2016). These albums have charted high in countries like the US, France, Australia, Norway, and Belgium.
