CareerEdit

Davidson was part of the duo Les Momies de Palerme, along with Xarah Dion.[1] Their album, Brûlez ce coeur, was released on Constellation Records in 2010. She has collaborated with various other musicians including Matana Roberts (on her project Coin Coin Chapter One: Gens de couleur libres) and David Kristian, and she was part of the orchestral project Land of Kush.[1]

She is also one half of the minimal wave duo Essaie Pas,[6] a duo she formed with her partner, Pierre Guerineau.[7][8]

Her third solo album, Adieux au dancefloor, was named by Pitchfork as one of "The 20 Best Electronic Albums of 2016".[9] The album is themed around Davidson's ambivalent feelings towards dance music and club culture.[10] She released Working Class Woman on Ninja Tune in 2018.[4]
