M83 is a French electronic music band led by Anthony Gonzalez, currently based in Los Angeles. Formed in 2001 in Antibes, France, it was initially a duet featuring Nicolas Fromageau. The band has released seven albums and two soundtracks, including the Grammy Award-nominated Hurry Up, We're Dreaming, a double album that brokers a brilliantly effective accord between the ostensibly conflicting demands of commercial pop and experimental rock, and packs some truly giant tunes.

Gonzalez, an Antibes native, has been steadily working to perfect the art of alternative pop song since the band's beginnings. His self-titled debut from 2001 and sophomore release in 2003, Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts established him as a heavy hitter in the post-rock/bliss pop/cosmic electronica genre.

The 2008 album Saturdays = Youth, a nostalgia-soaked tribute to Gonzalez’s teenage years and an unashamed celebration of artists such as Kate Bush and Jean-Michel Jarre – paved the way for the monumental Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming released in 2011. Kings Of Leon, The Killers and Depeche Mode – all of whom M83 toured with in 2010 – can also take some credit for Gonzalez’s vocals.
