Davidson’s new record with L’Œil Nu is her first since her 2018 solo album ‘Working Class Woman’, which was nominated for the Polaris Music Prize the following year.
Writing in review of the record, NME‘s Thomas Smith said: “Throughout, Davidson refuses to be pigeonholed into any one corner of the club – with each track, she flexes her songwriting muscles in fascinating ways.
“Davidson’s ‘Working Class Woman’ is smart, intriguing and deserves to be heralded as one of the year’s most inventive releases – Lord knows she’s worked hard enough for it.”
