M83 – ‘Kim & Jessie’
We *heart* the ’80s. That’s the first thing this track exclaims. And it doesn’t stop there: just delve further into the brilliantly titled Saturdays = Youth, check out the video for ‘Graveyard Girl’ (below), or even take a cursory glance at the album’s artwork. But rest assured, for Frenchman Anthony Gonzalez (aka M83) has refined these elements into a poignant aesthetic that rises far beyond mere retro indulgence and kitsch nostalgia.
Saturdays = Youth is out now on Mute.
