Hurry Up, We're Dreaming
LISTEN /// M83 - NEW MAP
It’s safe to say M83's upcoming “epic double album” Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is going to be just that; epic. First single “Midnight City” was a gloriously throwback piece of synth-pop, saxophone solo and all. "New Map" follows in that vein, cramming in so much joy I didn’t think was possible to fit into a pop song. Those drums sound as if they should be on a Blink-182 song, the synths just keep building and building, those flutes in the outro clearly hinting at the 60s wall of sound production… I’m struggling to find words for how much I love this. It might just top Bombay Bicycle Club’s “Shuffle” as my song of the year.
We’ll have a full review of Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming some time this week.
