This week we feature “Echoes”, a short promotional video for M83′s album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming. M83 is a French electronic music group comprised of Anthony Gonzalez, Yann Gonzalez, Morgan Kibby, Loïc Maurin, and Jordan Lawlor.
While it may seem odd to see what amounts to an advertisement show up in this space, the video is simply magnificent! Featuring a montage of musical instruments and scenes from around the world, this brief, ethereal piece is something you do not want to miss. Check it out below the jump!
A terrible and splendid trust,
Heartens the host of Innisfail;
Their dream is of the swift sword-thrust;
The lightning glory of the Gael.
Croagh Patrick is the place of prayers,
And Tara the assembling place:
But each sweet wind of Ireland bears
The trump of battle on its race.
From Dursey Isle to Donegal,
From Howth to Achill, the glad noise
Rings: and the airs of glory fall,
