M83 - "Midnight City" Video

The video for M83′s skyward synth epic “Midnight City” concerns an X-Men-esque school for kids with glowing eyes and freaky special powers, and what happens when a group of those kids escapes and has a telekinetic break-stuff party in an empty building. Fleur & Manu direct, and it’s awesome. Watch it below, and shout out to Michael_ for breaking us off with a working embed.

M83′s Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is out tomorrow on Mute.
