M83 - Steve McQueen

M83's "Steve McQueen" was one of the many explosions on last year's Hurry Up, We're Dreaming.  The entire album is stunning, but there's something extra special about this song.  A few months ago, M83 held a video submission contest to find the official music video for the single.  The grand prize also included a load of money (£3,000), just in case having your video chosen wasn't enough validation.

The winning video, directed by Balthazar Auxietre and Sylvain Derosne, features stop motion animation and a boy in a yellow suit.  He's wearing a bow tie, too.  It's all very M83-ish for not being the creation of Anthony Gonzalez or anyone else within the band.  Check out the video below and see what this bow tie boy is all about.

Hurry Up, We're Dreaming is out now on Mute.  You can purchase a copy of the album, here.
