A friend, knowing my tastes in music, suggested the band M83, who got started in Antibes, France and later moved to Los Angeles. I listened, and I liked it. Theirs is a combination of synthpop, shoegaze, dream pop, post-rock, ambient, and electronic rock. Wikipedia tells us
Initially a duo of multi-instrumentalists Nicolas Fromageau and Anthony Gonzalez, Fromageau parted ways shortly after touring for their second album Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts. Gonzalez remains the sole constant member of the project, serving as the primary songwriter and lead vocalist. The band has released eight studio albums, including the Grammy Award-nominated Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, and two soundtracks. Gonzalez records primarily on his own, with numerous guest musicians. The band is signed to Mute Records and found breakout success in 2011 with the single "Midnight City".
