#songoftheday / M83: “In The Cold I’m Standing”

This instrumental track by M83, “In The Cold I’m Standing,”  is from their critically acclaimed third album, Before The Dawn Heals Us, which will be reissued shortly.  Admittedly, this one plays more like film score or an interlude than an actual song, but it’s still downright glorious, its layers of synth radiating with cool, blue light.  It’s like the sonic equivalent of menthol when you have a sore throat, only it’s your soul that this beautiful piece touches.

Taken from Before The Dawn Heals Us, M83’s third studio album, and perhaps the one that catapulted their success in North America. Lauded by Spin as one of 2005’s Next Big Things, with glowing press from Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, Vice, Pitchfork and a myriad of other publications, M83 saw their first major television commercial with “Don’t Save Us From The Flames” featured in a Pontiac ad. 2005 also saw M83 perform at the prestigious Lollapalooza, Coachella, Austin City Limits, and headlining KEXP’s Benefit Concert in Seattle.
