Marie Davidson (CA)
As a solo artist and as one half of Essaie Pas, Marie Davidson creates cold, hypnotic minimal wave with analog synthesizers and drum machines, showcasing her intimate yet detached lyrics that are more often spoken than sung. She made her solo debut in 2012 with a self-titled digital EP. Austin-based label HoloDeck, home to Troller and S U R V I V E, issued it on cassette in 2013, followed by the release of her debut solo LP ‘Perte D’Identité’ in 2014 on Weyrd Son Records. She returned to HoloDeck for her second album, 2015's Un Autre Voyage. In 2016, Essaie Pas' full-length ‘Demain Est Une Autre Nuit’ was released by DFA, and Cititrax issued Davidson's solo effort ‘Adieux Au Dancefloor’. After a hot summer with shows on all major festivals she’s on full speed to treat you on something special.
