Making Time presents: Marie Davidson & Solar @ The Dolphin

Marie Davidson

From the prolific cultural epicenter of Montreal, Marie
Davidson has emerged as one of the foremost electronic artists
working in contemporary pop today. As a long-time member of
Essaie pas (DFA Records, Teenage Menopause) and DKMD (Giallo
Disco Records, Fur Trade Recordings), Davidson has had the
opportunity to hone her many talents. She has been
participating in the city’s vibrant experimental community for
much of her adult life. However, in 2012 she began to unveil
compositions under her own name, revealing a solo artist who
possessed the combined confidence and vulnerability required
to write, produce and perform unaccompanied. Davidson’s
intimate solo work is embodied through a host of synthesizers,
sequencers and drum machines which coalesce in synchronized
harmony, punctuated by vocals, half sung, half spoken in both
French and English. She masterfully shapes the overall mood,
themes, emotion, expression and intensity of her work, which
gives the final result a distinctive, cinematic quality. Her
live sets are energetic, built for dancing, as audiences
become immersed in hypnotic rhythms, absorbed by the tightly
sequenced bass lines and engaged by her vocal delivery. Not
only will she will spin you a tale, her music will immerse
your soul in haunting images of sweet anxiety and glamourous
In the last two years Marie Davidson has caught the attention
of the press by releasing “Perte d’identité” (Weyrd Son
Records 2014) followed by “Un autre voyage” (Holodeck Records
2015). Both albums have been acknowledged for their unique
blend of upbeat and ambient material. She is now about to
release her first fully dance floor oriented piece of work on
the distinguished label Cititrax (the division of Minimal Wave
records which focuses on new contemporary music). As a solo
performer Davidson has played internationally renowned
festivals such as SXSW (Austin), MUTEK (Montreal), OUTLINE
(Moscow), OBEY Convention (Halifax), City Of A Thousand Suns
(Fort Gorgast, Germany), Phénomena (Montreal) and Pop
Montreal. She has also toured Europe four times and twice in
the U.S. Demain est une autre nuit, the latest release of her
duo Essaie pas was on the long list for the Polaris Music
Prize of 2016.
Marie’s latest solo album, “Adieux Au Dancefloor” came out on
Cititrax in October 2016 and received critical acclaims from
Pitchfork, The Quietus, Resident Advisor and many more.
