Last year, Marie Davidson, Pierre Guerineau, and Asaël R. Robitaille formed a new trio called Marie Davidson & L’Œil Nu. Songs from their debut album, Renegade Breakdown, will now get the remix treatment, starting with a Jlin rework of “C’est parce que j’m’en fous.” Check it out below. The remix series, released via Ninja Tune, will also feature Young Marco, Morgan Geist, and other remixers to be announced.
Marie Davidson and L’Œil Nu have also announced Renegade Breakdown Live, a one-off livestream capturing their first ever live performance. It will be shot by experimental Quebecois filmmaker Denis Côté, who said in a press release, “It is a refreshing novelty in my career to be approached to film such a freeform concert. For the concept, I imagined the performance as a laboratory experiment. Without completely turning my back on the festive aspects, I favored something a little colder, which leads to a certain purity of the act of watching a concert.” The results, say the band, are “as eerie and honest as it can get.”
Of the Jlin remix, Davidson added in a press release: “We’ve all been appreciators of Jlin’s work in the band, and it’s a huge honour to have her remixing our music. ‘C’est parce que ’m’en fous’ is a track that talks about the concepts of femininity and feminism as opposed to calculated feminism, and I could not have wished for a better remixer. Thank you Jlin for this killer track!”
