After studying classical violin in her youth, Marie Davidson became so enamored with analog electronic music that she dropped out of school to pursue it. Formerly a member of several Montréal-based bands, Davidson's singular solo work has since appeared on a variety of indie labels, including Austin, TX's Holodeck Records and DFA Records as a member of Essaie Pas. Armed with an arsenal of synthesizers, drum machines, sequencers, portable recorders and pedals, Davidson now blurs the lines between techno, Italo disco, synth pop, house and more. With each song, you wonder whether she's channeled lost sessions from Giorgio Moroder or Eduard Artemyev. Often delivering her arresting, hypnotic vocals in both English and French, her atmospheric soundscapes are as meditative as they are kinetic, the kind of electronic music that can catalyze life-altering decisions.
