Marie Davidson - Working Class Woman [Coloured Vinyl]
Format: Coloured Vinyl LP
Catalogue No.: ZEN250C
Release Date: 10 Dec 2021
Marie Davidson is a Canadian electronic producer and performer who released ‘Working Class Woman’ on Ninja Tune in October 2018. This album is now being released on clear vinyl.
‘Working Class Woman’ is Marie’s fourth and most self-reflective record to date. Italo Disco, proto-industrial and electro influences leaden with gut-punching weight that makes the record more visceral than any she’s released before. Industrial heaviness is balanced by Marie’s spoken text (rather than spoken word); dark, textured soundscapes are counterweighted by statements that carry a darkly humorous edge, making observations on both aspects of club culture as well as more oblique critiques of the modern world.
“As her production taps out cross-rhythms like a flock of woodpeckers, Marie Davidson’s spoken words demand nonstop work: a gig-economy ultimatum.” - New York Times (‘Work It’, #14 in 65 Best Songs)
“Marie Davidson’s voice is one of the biggest pleasures in contemporary electronic music.” - The Guardian
‘Working Class Woman’ was shortlisted for the 2019 Polaris Music Prize and included in many 2018 End Of Year lists.
First single ‘So Right’ was remixed by John Talabot.
Legendary Belgian duo Soulwax remixed ‘Work It’, which was nominated for Best Remixed Recording at the 2020 GRAMMY Awards, and for Best Independent Remix at the 2020 AIM Awards.
Davidson has previously performed live at internationally renowned festivals such as SONAR (Reykjavik and Barcelona), Primavera Sound, Dekmantel, Lowlands, Flow, Melt!, Dour, ADE Live, Red Bull Music Festival, SXSW, The Warehouse Project, Parklife and Field Day and supported Eric Copeland.
