RIYL: The Album Leaf / Air
βGo!,β the latest single from symphonic-indie-electronic-dream pop powerhouse, M83, seems at first like a characteristically βepicβ M83 song. Taken from 2016βs Junk, it opens with breathy vocals from French singer Mai Lan and lyrics that suggests romantic situations that teenagers always seem to find themselves in.
Then, out of nowehere, Steve Vai bursts through to play a guitar solo made of glowsticks. Wait, Steve Vai? The legendary virtuoso guitar hero who defined an era? Correct. The mood of the song flips entirely, as his solo becomes the colorfully explosive conclusion at the end of a perfunctory night of fireworks. It feels complete; it feels epic.
