Music Monday : M83

M83 group picture M83 group picture[/caption] If you’re a keen Made in Chelsea, you may have heard this weeks Music Monday quite a lot before as it’s the programs theme tune. It’s a song called Midnight City which is pretty old as it was released from french band M83’s 2011 double album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming.  Midnight City is a fab song although they had previously toured with the likes of The Killers, Depeche Mode and Kings of Leon, this turned out to actually be their break through track and it topped singles charts for quite some time. The album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming that it came from was written as though it was a soundtrack to a unknown film but because of this and their interesting extensive use of reverb effects and intricate story telling, made their work ideal track for many themes for series. The obvious one being Made in Chelsea as mentioned earlier, but also The Vampire Diaries, Revenge, Gossip Girl  and many more. Most recently they’ve collaborated with American pop, rock girl band Haim to create one of the main songs ‘Holes In the Sky’ from the soundtrack for the third film in the Divergent series – Insurgent. Let me know what you think of M83, their music and if you like Midnight City as much a I do in the comments below and on Twitter. Happy Monday!   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dX3k_QDnzHE
