Description

Montréal native Marie Davidson’s unique form of 
synth pop has become an undeniable force in 
modern music, and until now her 2012 debut has 
only been available through digital download and 
limited edition cassette. On March 30th, 2018 Marie 
Davidson’s newly re-mastered self-titled EP will be 
available for the first time on pink colored vinyl with 
foil stamped deluxe packaging. Her debut chronicles 
the development of Davidson before her three 
critically acclaimed full-length LPs, high profile press 
coverage and headlining slots at international 
festivals. 

Marie began her musical career playing in several 
noteworthy ensembles including Essaie Pas (DFA 
Records) and DKMD (Giallo Disco), however her 
self-titled EP documents her first venture into solo 
material. Raw yet creatively pristine, all of Marie’s 
endearing and charismatic traits are fully represented 
in their elemental states. This debut made clear that 
Marie is a singular talent who has the potential to 
grab the attention of a much broader audience. Sung 
and spoken in both English and French, Marie’s vocal 
delivery moves between melodic and rhythmic 
motifs, smoothly constructing her abstract lyrics into 
satisfying works of art. Davidson’s approach to drum 
machine and synthesizer composition is a language 
unto itself, refreshingly unrestrained by tradition. 

Marie’s sensibilities establish brooding atmospheres 
by using minimal elements in unorthodox ways. From 
the percussive vocals lines on “À l'intérieur,” to the 
atonal synth leads on “La Vallée d'Or” Davidson’s 
outsider take on electronic music is pure and 
innovative. The single “Esthétique privée” strikes an 
elegant balance between ominous tones and somber 
vocal melodies over a catchy, analog drum beat. 
Pieces like these are the essence of Marie’s work, 
experimenting with the familiar in order to achieve 
something wholly new. 

From the humble beginnings of homemade demo 
recordings, Holodeck is proud to bring Marie 
Davidson’s modern classic back to life.
