Ah! If you’ve read any of my posts about the music I love, you’ll know that I am small-time obsessed with M83‘s music. Epic, original, yet orchestral in scale, their music transports you from where ever you are, to an amalgamous musical universe of their making. Imagine my excitement when I found out they’d be on the Divergent soundtrack!
Yes, I am a sci-fi, nerdy fan girl, and have read every book in Veronica Roth’s Divergent Trilogy. Unless you’ve been living in a cave, or don’t watch TV at all, you wouldn’t know that the books were turned into a major motion picture. This soundtrack is set to be a musical compilation of awesome, with M83 (iPhone heart eyes) at the helm. Kendrick Lamar and TAME IMPALA (!!!) also are doing a collaboration on soundtrack, along with Skrillex, Ellie Goulding, A$AP Rocky with Gesaffelstein and more. Too much dopeness. The soundtrack is set to hit iTunes and stores March 11.
Back to this track. Folks keep comparing the vocal stylings on “I Need You” to Bon Iver, however, this band pre-dates his a*s by years, even though his music is dope to me as well. If you love shoegaze, 80’s rock, or big production in music period, you’ll love this song. Take a listen!
