Indie kids ''love'' this band. It's very easy to spot why: M83 loves to use experimental sound effects to add to the artistic quality of their albums. Lots of people who aren't indie kids also love this band for the same reasons. Much like [[Music/DaftPunk another popular French electronic group]] was chosen to score Film/TronLegacy, they were chosen by director Joseph Kosinski to score Film/{{Oblivion}}.

** The ''Midnight City'' video seems to be a shoutout to both VillageoftheDamned and ''Akira'', focusing on psychic children with glowing eyes.

Added DiffLines:
* SpokenWordInMusic: Multiple examples across the albums, telling stories under the music... ** '''Before The Dawn Heals Us''': "Moonchild," the break from "Safe," and "Car Chase Terror" ** '''Hurry Up, We're Dreaming''': The opening of "Intro," the breaks from "Reunion" and "OK Pal," and the entirety of "Raconte-Moi Une Histoire" (in English) and "Echoes of Mine" (in French).

Added DiffLines:
* WanderlustSong: "New Map" * WelcomeToTheBigCity: "Midnight City" is a subversion; it was inspired by Anthony Gonzalez's admiration of Los Angeles's skyline after spending most of his life in the French countryside.

Their career started in 2001 with a Self-TitledAlbum that received [[SoOkayItsAverage little attention or praise.]] They released their second album ''Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts'' in 2003: critically praised but commercially ignored for its first year. Then the indie scene picked it up and they gained some popularity. By 2005's ''Before The Dawn Heals Us'', they had gained a fanbase and critics were drooling in anticipation over the album's release. Though not as critically praised as ''Dead Cities'', it got very positive attention. Then ''Saturdays=Youth'' was released in 2008, once again getting them good sales and positive critical attention. The band's next album, ''Hurry Up, We're Dreaming'', was issued in 2011 to massive acclaim and its first single, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDyonn3mQj8 Midnight City]]" was named the best song of the year by Pitchfork Media (and in 2012, the song became rather popular on alternative rock radio).
