M83, ‘Wait’ – New Video
M83 certainly are getting mileage out of ‘Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming.’ More than a year after the album dropped, the French electronic act has come out with a video for ‘Wait,’ the disc’s fifth single. The Fleur & Manu-directed clip is the third and final installment in a trilogy that also includes the band’s ‘Midnight City’ and ‘Reunion’ videos, and this latest one continues the sci-fi spirit introduced in the first two.
This time around, the telekinetic children and the overall post-apocalyptic vibe is made even more ominous with the introduction of an extraterrestrial element. The ‘Wait’ clip doesn’t exactly wrap up the trilogy’s storyline in a neat little bow — but then again, it wouldn’t exactly be a weird M83 video if it spelled everything out, now would it?
