Marie Davidson (CA)

Montréal musician Marie Davidson intones poetically over dark, heavy synths and drum beats, her vocals blending with sweeping techno to conjure a moody cinematic atmosphere. Using analogueue synthesizers and sequencers supplemented with violins and other instruments, Davidson builds layers of cold sound for her captivating voice to cut through, sometimes melancholy and detached, sometimes biting. Davidson’s projects include Essaie Pas, Constellation Records-signed Les Momies de Palerme (a duo with fellow multi-instrumentalists Xarah Dion), and DKMD with David Kristian (Fur Trade Recordings), boasting performances at music festivals Suoni per Il Popolo, Pop Montreal, Festival International de Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville, Festival Voix d'Amériques and MUTEK 2012 (opening for Tim Hecker and Stephen O’Malley). After a disarming solo EP on Texas label Holodeck, Davidson released her debut LP “Perte d'identité” on Brussels-based label Weyrd Son Records in April 2014, featuring a bonus track remixed by Cristobal Urbina and The Mole.
