Weekend Videos: M83 – “Couleurs” Live
Taken from Saturdays = Youth, “Couleurs” is a force to be reckoned with, for sure. But nothing beats the live version they played to close their set at FYF fest the other Sunday (not to be confused with other live versions floating around).
This clip from their show at Club Nokia earlier this year is spot-on, down to the triumphant call to the crowd, “Los Angeles!” at the end. Yes, it really was that rad. Let’s just say it was a perfect encapsulation of space and time, and I came to question the meaning of their name: how they may or may not represent my generation (m) and the year I was born (83).
Be sure to listen through to the 2:30-mark when the guitar comes in and really shakes things up! And if you’re not sold at that point (it may be hopeless), but certainly stick around for the blazing sax track (4:45).
The rhythm of this track is on another level. Best. Thing. Ever.
