MARIE DAVIDSON
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=P9XEN5DZaps
The particular feel of Marie Davidson’s latest video is to trip on time-release. “Balade Aux USA” is a synth-driven poem brought to life by a short film directed by Kaspar’89. As the red-lipped artist navigates a blinking matrix, Davidson speaks in her signature French verses which, despite their detached delivery, feel strangely intimate. The video, for the first single off of Davidson’s second full-length (a follow-up to 2014’s Perte d’identité), channels 80s italo disco aesthetics into the style of a low-budget, late-night commercial. The Montreal artist once again embraces avant-garde visuals to express her music as fiercely original art-pop.
(Impose magazine)

Montréal’s Marie Davidson uses the French language like an instrument. Delivered mostly in a spoken monotone, she plays it well to its tantalizing effects. Or perhaps it’s my lack of understanding of the language and seeing one too many Godard films that has contributed to my perception of French as the lingua franca of the coquette. Despite the lyrics falling on unknowing ears, in “Balade Aux USA” Davidson’s voice is mesmerizing atop meticulously programmed drums and synths. Her composition is a feat of coalescence. Davidson merges her warm voice with cold electropop tools-- both are met halfway with wiley guitar lines. The track is a single from her sophomore LP, Un Autre Voyage, a collection of songs based on true intrapersonal experiences and the follow-up to last year’s Perte D'identite. (AD HOC)
