Essaie pas always seek out fresh challenges. After all, there’s a whole universe of sounds, sights, and new ideas to explore. Emerging from Montreal’s sprawling electronic scene, the duo - Marie Davidson and Pierre Guerineau– feel completely free to express themselves, to sketch out hitherto unmapped musical regions. Their musical language is vibrant and varied - comparisons range from Film Soundtracks, Electronic Body Music, Disco, and Minimal Techno, with sensually-delivered lyrics exploring the themes of fantasies, obsessions, and the feeling of “The Void”.
Signed to DFA Recordings, they are returning in 2018 with a new album on the NYC label.
