Single Review – M83 – Do It, Try It

The French electronic collective led by Anthony Gonzalez and hailing from Antibes have returned with details of their Seventh studio album Junk which is expected on April 8th. The album is expected to take a less ambient-driven tone and instead have a greater dance influence. The first single ‘Do It, Try It’ confirms this with echoed and sprung piano chords arranged to form a hook. From this foundation stretch more distorted electronic melodies, wiry synth chords and bass manipulated piano chords. The track has that matured dance feel to it and has several quirks of production to it. It is well produced, but there is little engagement with the track beyond that and it is often disjointed in its progression. Hopefully more tangible sounds will emerge.
