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.

With M83 (a.k.a. Anthony Gonzalez) set to deliver some reissues next week, we can only presume that the heady electro-pop performer has even more goodies locked up in the vaults. Now, he's let loose a vintage, previously unseen video for his classic Before the Dawn Heals Us track "Lower Your Eyelids to Die with the Sun."
A melding of beauty and horror, the video pairs M83's synth serenity with a mixture of vintage car-crash visuals and slow-mo shots of a pair enduring a glass-shattering accident. As the mournful choir vocals hit harder and harder, we see purses, watches and other personal items performing elegiac twists in the air along with their owners, while a trickle of petrol crosses the hood of a car. The existential experience caps with a fireball and a glance at the cosmos, leaving us to ponder what is and what was. -- Exclaim!
