& End of the Road this Summer.
U.S. Girls return in 2016 with a brand new video and news of upcoming tours of Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Korea, Europe and North America. Her acclaimed album, Half Free, has also just received a prestigious JUNO Awards nomination for Best Alternative Album.
‘Navy & Cream’ is the next track from Half Free to get its own accompanying video. Working with artist and animator Emily Pelstring, whose hand-drawn animations coupled with footage of Meg singing have been processed through various equipment like VJ software, a video projector, an antique video camera and an analog color-corrector before being mixed with a feedback loop on one channel and the original source material on the other to create a beguiling montage of screen-glare, echoing trails and softened edges.

An undeniable live act – “Meghan Remy’s distinctive voice perfectly links the musical melange of funk, electropop and warped beats, to create a captivating theatrical psychodrama” (The Guardian) – U.S. Girls will play shows in Australia (including Sydney Opera House with Sleater-Kinney), New Zealand, Japan and Korea next month before heading to Europe. She makes it to the UK in early April and will play shows in London, Sheffield and Manchester…
“A sad pop record that invokes spectres of high, soft and fragile-voiced female singers from past generations, who turn positions of weakness into performances of great strength.” The WIRE
“A creatively restless, audacious voice.” Pitchfork (8.0)
“The fast-rising exponent of luscious lo-fi DIY pop” The Guardian
“Her compelling first album for 4AD tackles sex, betrayal, ageing and the fate of women widowed by war, to lush soundscapes that underpin her glacially detached 1960s-girl-group vocals with pop, reggae, disco and ambient soul. Not to be missed.” Sunday Times Culture
“The record is a veritable patchwork of perspectives. It elevates the voices of women who, on paper, might seem broken, were it not for Remy’s ability to trade desperation for cynical dynamism.” The Line of Best Fit (8/10)
“This is the unmistakeable sound of a star being born: this is an album with something to say, in a voice all of its own.” NME (8/10)
“These songs (may be) pretty, but something intense seethes just beneath the surface.” Uncut (8/10)
“While the whole “lo-fi artist cleans up their act” is a total cliché, it works a charm here.” VICE
“Each song on Half Free holds it own perfectly… Deconstructing and subverting classic jazz, funk and disco with moody percussion, warped synths and wonderfully playful vocals.” DIVA
