M83 – ‘Steve McQueen’

0

After the success of ‘Midnight City’ yet the relative failure of other singles ‘Reunion’ and ‘Ok Pal’, the French synth-pop behemoth seek to set the record straight on their fourth track from the critically acclaimed Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming.

Starting off in a trademark fashion of deep synths, rolling voices, and catchy drum beats, ‘Steve McQueen’ encapsulates the true spirit of M83 and the overall aura of their sixth studio album supremely well. The textured track recalls some of their earlier career success as the ghostly vocals are juxtaposed against the unrelenting pace, all mixed into a cloud of reverb.

Although it’s not going to have the same impact that ‘Midnight City’ had, nor does it have the same pop credentials ‘Steve McQueen’ is a euphoric track that proves what the veteran band still have to offer.

7/10
