U.S. Girls is the protean musical enterprise of multi-disciplinary artist, Meg Remy. Early collisions of static, clang and sung melody have given way to an immediate, collaborative, and increasingly politicized vision. Disco is employed as a protest vernacular. Moody, slow-burning funk, and earnest synth anthems soundtrack lyrical interrogations of morality, and the universal consequence of its deferment.
There is no shortage of art that lends distraction and offers a balm of comforting fantasy. For those, on the other hand, craving a thoughtful and probing inquiry into the iniquity of power, U.S. Girls pose a substantial question; can you dance while you think?
