Marie Davidson & L’Œil Nu is the new project of Canadian musician Marie Davidson and it involves long-term collaborators with shared roots in Montreal’s DIY scene: Pierre Guerineau and Asaël R. Robitaille. The collaborative album Renegade Breakdown will be out on September 25th via Ninja Tune.
According to the press release, Drawn to the idea of the eternal return, they deliver a forward-facing, innovative pop record that builds on the classic tenets of Marie’s music to create something that strikes out towards a broader audience. With dark humour and interpolated musical influences—from Fleetwood Mac to Kraftwerk, and jazz classics such as Billie Holiday and Chet Baker—they spin each of its entries in wildly imaginative directions.
We already shared the title-track; “Worst Comes To Worst” is a new excerpt. Listen below.
