Week-End Mixtape #6
The tracks on this podcast, which Marie Davidson recorded exclusively for our friends of Week-End Festival, are all love songs, and many of them on the sadder side of the genre. This is not purely coincidental—the Franco-Canadian from Montreal has a fond relationship with melancholy. It is not so much that she likes to succumb to it, but that it is, ultimately, a necessary evil in the artistic process. A song such as “Dedicated my Life,” from her current album “Adieux Au Dancefloor,” certainly wouldn’t have been possible without firsthand knowledge of the deep empty chasms that being an artist as well as life itself hold in store. Or expressed another way through the titles of two of Marie’s current songs: “Inferno” and “Good vibes” aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive.
These are the songs that inspire Marie Davidson.
