Beats and loops are Meg Remy aka U.S. Girl’s bread and butter. Throw in a soulful ‘60s-esque voice and powerful lyrical turns, and there’s no wondering why 2015, with the release of Half Free, was a breakout year for the enigmatic artist. Now preparing for headlines shows In Australia, and a huge Golden Plains set, U.S. Girls has just dropped a clip for ‘Navy & Cream’.
In creating the video U.S. Girls worked with artist and animator Emily Pelstring, whose hand-drawn animations, coupled with some experimental footage of Meg singing, produce a wonderfully slanted and mesmeric sequenced of vision.
Locked in to play an enthralling, sun-bleached Saturday afternoon set at Golden Plains Festival, U.S. Girls has also lined up a run of shows along the East Coast for their debut Australian tour. One of which will be a support slot for Sleater-Kinney – not too bad at all!
