Marie Davidson announces retirement from live club music

Marie Davidson is set to take a departure from the live club scene, after one final gig on September 20 for a Red Bull Music Festival event in Montreal.

She claims she wants to “explore new horizons” in a recent Instagram post. “It’s with a lot emotions that I present to you my last party playing live hardware club music”.

The event has been suitably named ‘Save the Last Dance for Me’, and will also feature artists such as Afrodeutsche, Solitary Dancer and Underground Resistance’s project Depth Charge. She states, “Everyone on the bill are outstanding musicians and human beings and I hope that you will be able to make it.”

Marie Davidson has consistently captivated music fans through her captivating live show, and her extensive range productions blending synthwave, ambient, spoken-word, techno and beyond. Her distinctive fourth album ‘Working Class Woman’ placed 10th in our best albums 2018.

Earlier this month, Davidson self-released a new EP that featured a previously unreleased original track ‘Chasing The Light’, as well as remixes from Soulwax and Daniel Avery.

Her final live club show takes place at Montreal’s Studio Notre-Dame. Check the event page and grab tickets here.
