The band was founded in 2001 by Gonzalez and former member Nicolas Fromageau. The musical style of M83 owes something to the shoegazing genre in its extensive use of reverb effects and lyrics spoken softly over loud instrumentals, although M83′s songs employ considerably less guitar than most shoegazing bands.
In 2004 Gonzalez and Fromageau parted ways shortly after touring for their second album Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts. Gonzalez now records mainly on his own, often with the help of his brother Yann Gonzalez, vocalist/keyboardist Morgan Kibby, guitarist/bassist Pierre-Marie Maulini, and drummer Loïc Maurin.
Reunion is the second single taken from the album, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, out now.
