One half of minimal wave duo Essaie Pas, Montreal-based singer, poet and, producer Marie Davidson continues to surf her hypnotic, minimal wave following the successful release of Working Class Woman. Riding the immaculate release with precision and ease, Davidson has unveiled entrancing visuals for "Burn Me", the ninth track of the ten-track album.
Opening with an innocuous 'Hey!', the video immediately draws us into a wayward psychedelic dystopia of analog synths and drum machines. Directed by Larissa Corriveau, the video for "Burn Me" is hypnotic and bewitching, echoing the minimal vibes of the track with its simple, still-shot frames pulsating alongside the chilling beat. Overlaid with messages throughout, "Burn Me" showcases an intimate yet brooding take on electronica that screams experimental insanity whilst maintaining a plethora of grounded video; from 90's dance videos to current pop-culture, "Burn Me" is an eclectic amalgamation of time and space that sends us into an otherworldly sonic spiral.
Davidson recently kicked off a run of live shows across Europe and North America with a sold-out London album launch, and returns to join Hunee on his XOYO residency next month.
