TGIF: M83's "I Need You"

Following a year of penning other swirling synth beauties for sci-fi thrillers, M83's Anthony Gonzalez just dropped another new single and contribution to the futuristic film Divergent. It's called "I Need You," and of course, it's gorgeous.

M83 is easily one of the most cherished bands of my past decade - offering an endless collection of powerful, accessible electronic that remains unparalleled in my books. Usually blending a combination of big percussion, melodic keys and some sort of sax bridge - Anthony Gonzalez has no shortage of spine-tingling anthems up his sleeve.

Even though the song has typically big moments, Gonzalez's oh-so-sweet croon anchors the track.

PS The rest of the soundtrack will deserve a listen - it features Ellie Goulding, Snow Patrol, Chance the Rapper and a "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards" rework by Kendrick Lamar and Tame Impala. (Wait, what? Yes please.)
