M83's 'Junk': The 5 Best Songs For Dancing Your Ass Off

The French synthpop act is back almost five years after the monumental 'Hurry Up, We're Dreaming'—and they still know how to make you move

1 / 5

"Do It, Try It"

Junk's first song gets things off to the perfect start with some weird piano before blasting into the type of thumping beat that M83 always gets you grooving to. There's no way to be anything but uninhibited once that meltdown starts just before the three-minute mark.

"Bibi the Dog" featuring Mai Lan

All these dancey new M83 songs are dancey in a specific way: The way where your huge helpless smile does at least half the heavy lifting. "Bibi the Dog" will take you straight there from the jump.

3 / 5

"Lazer Gun" featuring Mai Lan

This is your "swaying gently with hands in the air" moment. Catch your breath. Surf on some synths. You'll be bunny-hopping by the end.

4 / 5

"Moon Crystal"

You're gonna want to have a disco-appropriate outfit for this one, and make sure your honey's nearby. Or just dance awkwardly with your dog or cat—seems appropriate for this record.

5 / 5

"Road Blaster"

Hope you saved your goofiest moves for the goofiest title on the record. This one's tempo and rhythm might actually only allow for goofy moves.

Once people stop being nonchalant to it and recognize it, that’s when," he explains. "When it’s not something that’s just swept under the rug because we’re the quote-unquote ‘greatest country in the world.’”
