Single Review – M83 -Solitude

Anthony Gonzalez’s ambient electronic collective have released a six minute single in ‘Solitude’ from their upcoming April 8th album Junk. This track is a piano ballad with sweeping strings and that has echoed vocals sifting though the grand instrumentation . Atop this is whirring synthetica at certain intervals to produce a track that seems quite at home in the mid 70’s. In general it seems to be taking inspiration from Daft Punk’s foray into that era in 2013 albeit a little more extrapolated. The track is indeed graceful but they are yet to make a statement with this album.
