U.S. Girls announce album Half Free + Share single ‘Woman’s Work’

u.s. girls

The incredible U.S. Girls aka. Illinois-born and Toronto-based artist Meg Remy, will release her new album ‘Half Free’ via 4AD / Remote Control on Friday 25th September.

The second track to be heard from the album, ‘Woman’s Work’, debuted online, accompanied by another hypnotic video directed and edited by Remy. Following up on the release of the mutant dub of ‘Damn That Valley’ earlier this year, ‘Woman’s Work’ builds further anticipation and intrigue; Remy has delivered a nagging, arpeggio-laced stormer, picking away at the themes of beauty and neurosis, with a video that examines our collective paralysis in the face of ageing. Watch it below.

Introducing Leah Senior

kitchennohair

We are very excited to introduce Leah Senior to the Flightless / Remote Control family! Leah has shared her amazing single today via Happy who have given her a pretty great review below.

“This song is subtly astounding yet delicate and vocally intimate. It’s almost like Leah is whispering secrets to you over a hot chocolate in a city coffee shop. The City is a Stream is beautifully haunting and it’s times like this that Australia can have a pat on the back for producing such elegant music.”

Listen to ‘The City Is A Stream’ here.

You might recognise her from her cover with Fraser A Gorman.
