2AM Treats

Tonight I’ve not been able to sleep. Sometimes on nights like these good discoveries happen. The early discovery this morning comes from the band M83. M83 is a French electronic-rock-ish band formed in 2001. The band has 6 studio albums, with their most recent Hurry Up We’re Dreaming a two disc album from 2011. This was their breakout record in the US, with the single “Midnight City” getting a lot of airtime.

As you may know, I spend a lot of time watching music videos…but despite Hurry Up We’re Dreaming being a “perfect” record for me, I’ve never looked or desired to look for any videos associated with the album. That all changed tonight as I was watching a completely unrelated video, and in the suggested videos the track “Wait” came up. “Wait” is one of my favorite tracks off of HUWD, it is also the third in a video trilogy that tells the story of a group of “gifted” children. I just spent the last 20 or so minutes watching  the trilogy twice. Whether you like the music or not, the videos make quite an interesting story. Here they are in order:

“Midnight City”

“Reunion”

“Wait”
