Marie Davidson’s popular 2018 song, “Work It,” was a club hit, but also pointed to workaholism, in both her own life and society at large. Her latest album, 'Renegade Breakdown,' is a conscious departure from the club sound. It explores her process of detachment from commercial ideals and “industry in general."

In this episode, Davidson discusses working through her various addictions that were fueled by the pressures of capitalism, her connection to the life and music of Karen Carpenter, and how she’s embodied the punk rock spirit of “enough is enough” by being unapologetically herself.
