“Excès de Vitesse”, the latest single from Montreal avant-pop artist Marie Davidson‘s Un Autre Voyage, is another voyage indeed. Davidson’s sultry French monologues sprawl over ’80s industrial beats that feel similar to those putting an end to the American disco moment by embracing the European new wave. Not unlike Blade Runner, “Excès de Vitesse” evokes the ping-ponging of a vintage arcade game, yet still manages to feel buoyant within a harshly regimented infrastructure.
Un Autre Voyage will be released on April 14 from Holodeck Records. You can stream “Excès de Vitesse” below.
