Marie Davidson 'So Right' 12"
“Marie Davidson’s voice is one of the biggest pleasures in contemporary electronic music.” - The Guardian
Marie Davidson is a Canadian electronic producer and performer set to release THE ‘So Right’ EP on Ninja Tune. The single is taken from ‘Working Class Woman’, Marie’s fourth and most self-reflective album to date. Italo Disco, proto-industrial and electro influences leaden with gut-punching weight that makes the record more visceral than any she’s released before.
Industrial heaviness is balanced by Marie’s spoken text (rather than spoken word); dark, textured soundscapes are counterweighted by statements that carry a darkly humorous edge, making observations on both aspects of club culture as well as more oblique critiques of the modern world.
The ‘So Right’ EP includes an extended club version and a remix by John Talabot. The EP also includes new track ‘La Ecstase’, a collaboration with fellow Red Bull Academy attendee Lamusa II which is accompanied by a Silent Servant Remix.
Marie is a member of Essaie Pas with husband Pierre Guerineau (DFA Records) as well as with DKMD with David Kristian (Giallo Disco Records). Marie has also collaborated on previous projects with various artists including Xarah Dion as Les Momies De Palerme, Sleazy with Ginger Breaker and Matana Roberts.
In 2018 she embarks on a European tour including shows in Warehouse Project Manchester, headline shows at Colston Hall Bristol, Electrowerkz London as well as Hunee residency at XOYO.
Since releasing and touring productions under her own name in 2012, Marie has emerged as one of the foremost and unique solo electronic artists working in contemporary music today.
For fans of Essaie Pas, Nina Kraviz, Lena Willikens, Not Waving, Axel Bowman, Mano, Le Tough, Optimo and Sasha.
“There’s a tension and depth in ‘So Right’ that is absent in lots of dance music: It’s hilarious and groovy, but never self-serious, asking the listener to have a good time, then question why they’re having a good time in the first place.” - Pitchfork
