M83 are a French electronic music band led by Anthony Gonzalez and currently based in Los Angeles. Formed in 2001 in Antibes, France, it was initially a duo featuring Nicolas Fromageau. The band has released seven albums and two soundtracks, including the Grammy Award-nominated Hurry Up, We're Dreaming. Gonzalez and Fromageau parted ways shortly after touring their second album Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts. Gonzalez records primarily on his own, or with other artists only occasionally.
Influenced by the likes of Boards of Canada and Radiohead, Tennyson started fusing jazz with darker tones before finally releasing their 2012 self-titled debut and the Blamer EP shortly after. Both went relatively unnoticed.. Undeterred, the duo honed in on their own sound while releasing a steady stream of new tracks on Soundcloud, eventually catching the attention of producer Ryan Hemsworth with the rolling carousel and mellow midi keys on their remix of Angus and Julia Stoneâ€™s â€œFor You.â€� Taken aback by the strength of their musical compositions, Hemsworth put Tennysonâ€™s track â€œYouâ€™re Cuteâ€� as the first in his monthly Secret Songs series.
