Electronic music’s most idiosyncratic voice returns

Marie Davidson’s relationship with electronic music has always been coloured by a certain ambivalence: two years ago, the Montreal musician and DJ threatened to go back to rock; six years have gone by since she waved goodbye to the dancefloor. Renowned for her idiosyncratic vocal delivery (half-spoken, half-sung) and sharp-tongued satire (in both English and French), she first signed to James Murphy’s DFA Records with husband Pierre Guerineau as Essaie Pas. She’s gone on to release a defining pair of solo albums on Cititrax and Ninja Tune, blending her love of brooding 80s synths and catchy melody with hard-hitting club productions, personal confessions and feminist critique. After bringing the band back together in 2020 as for an expansive, oddball pop record as Marie Davidson & L’Œil Nu, she’s preparing to release new album (inspired by comedy and literature), which she’ll bring to the stage at Sónar 2024.
