'Chasing The Light' is the lead track from a new EP on Ninja Tune

Marie Davidson has shared a new track titled 'Chasing The Light'. You can hear it above.

The track will be released as part of a new EP on Ninja Tune, backed with remixes of 'Work It' and 'Lara' by Soulwax and Daniel Avery respectively. The original versions of both of those tracks featured on Davidson's 2018 album, Working Class Woman.

"'Chasing The Light' is a track I composed last summer in Montreal specifically for the Working Class Woman tour," Marie Davidson says. "It's a fast and energizing musical journey that is meant to keep you moving from start to finish.

"I'm particularly happy about the many melodic sequences and the bassline on this one. It’s my take on trance music, but as with everything I do, I try not to pastiche a style but only take the references that inspire me to make something on my own terms."

She goes on to describe the new track as her final "club music" effort ahead of moving onto a new project.

Ninja Tune will release the new EP on August 16. Revisit our 2018 Baker's Dozen feature with Marie Davidson here.
