M83 (named after the spiral galaxy "Messier 83") is electronic artist Anthony Gonzalez. Gonzalez and former member Nicolas Fromageau founded the group in 2001 in Antibes, France. M83's style owes a lot to the shoegaze genre, in that there is much emphasis on tonality, extensive use of reverb effects and often softly-spoken lyrics at times submerged in instrumentation. All five of M83's albums have been well received - in particular their second album Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts, which allowed them to break through to a larger audience.
