CRITIC REVIEWS

Exclaim!

Renegade Breakdown marks a thrilling deepening of Davidson's artistic voice. In its breathless exploration, Davidson blows open a dozen new doors. From here, she could go anywhere.

80
NME
The producer's new band veer between classic pop, rock, electro and jazz on a thrilling record where no two tracks sound the same.
72
Pitchfork

As a downcast lounge performer with an edge of sing-talk in her voice, Davidson is remarkably convincing, and as a series of experiments, Renegade Breakdown never fails to be interesting.

70
AllMusic

Even though Renegade Breakdown intentionally lacks the club energy that drove much of Davidson's best-known material, it's at least as inventive and exploratory.

70
Clash
The group are like actors playing parts outside their repertoire, giggling after the curtain falls at the strangeness of it all, and then realising, in fact, that they feel comfortable in their new roles. The audience might well twig this.
60
Uncut
It's not always successful, but if the thrilling likes of "Lead Sister" and "Renegade Breakdown" constitute a fresh start, we'll take it.
60
Loud and Quiet

While such a bold departure in sound should be applauded, with Renegade Breakdown Marie Davidson has created an album that misses more times than it hits.

'Renegade Breakdown' é um exercício artístico repleto de vida e sintonia, onde a união de fatores como a narrativa presente nas letras, a produção espetacular e a voz viciante de Marie Davidson acabam criando um material rico daquilo que há de melhor no cenário musical atualmente.
