BEFORE THE DAWN HEALS US is the third album from M83, essentially the brainchild of Anthony Gonzalez, a resident of Antibes, France. Like its two predecessors – the eponymous debut M83 and it’s follow up, DEAD CITIES, RED SEAS & LOST GHOSTS – it’s a huge and epic attempt to use music to transport its audience well beyond their immediate environment…
If M83 were a landscape, it would be endless, vast and open, God’s own country. If M83 were a building, it might resemble Cologne Cathedral, huge, imposing and, with its freakish gargoyles, somewhat unsettling. M83 is in fact a galaxy, and we have as much chance of defining that here as we do of pinning down single dust particles with a sponge, but fortunately M83 are also a band, and we can confirm that the name itself is triumphantly appropriate.
Following their recent (and fantastic!) sold out Electrowerkz performance and a successful US tour earlier this year, M83 will return to the UK in early 2005 for more superb live extravagance. http://www.gooom.com
