M83 and HAIM Team Up On "Holes in the Sky"

One of my very favourite bands, M83, has teamed up with indie-pop sister act HAIM for "Holes in the Sky" - their latest soundtrack contribution to the Divergent movie series' forthcoming instalment, Insurgent

The single is unsurprisingly another anthemic gem; a profound type of soundtrack ballad frontman Gonzalez has seemingly mastered at this point. "Holes in the Sky" is built off one of M83's grand orchestral landscapes, which slowly rises alongside HAIM's haunting vocals. I originally thought the HAIM sisters were an interesting (maybe odd) choice for the vocals on this one, but the more I listen, the more I hear how their bellowing harmonies fit the bill perfectly.

In conclusion, the whole thing is beautiful. You can listen to M83's first Divergent soundtrack contribution, with Susanne Sundfør, here. The Insurgent soundtrack is out on March 17, and the soundtrack will also feature SOHN, Zella Day, Lykke Li, Royal Blood and more.
