U.S. GIRLS – “28 Days”


U.S. GIRLS emerges once again, here with a video for a song called “28 Days” from a new EP called FREE ADVICE COLUMN (out soon on BAD ACTORS). Each time Meg Remy returns she has heaps more pop sensibility to be found in her music. Not modern pop, but as has been the case for a while and is far more evident than ever in the songs that I have heard from this EP, a slightly tweaked take on the girl group and soul sounds of the early 60s that you’ve no doubt heard yourself even if you were just born. On this EP Ms. Remy is working with producer ONAKABAZIEN and the results will probably send her old fans (if there were any left) running for the hills. She has, and will no doubt replace them with a new crop. Music as timeless as that which she is approximating (in her own way) will always be ripe for reinterpretation for the current generation, or more aptly for U.S. GIRLS’ target demographic: the current generation of non-pop fearing mutants. “28 Days” is an ode to the singer’s period. Coupling the wonder of the menstrual cycle with girl group moves is an inspired move. The video draws on the classic musical gang walking toward the camera whilst dancing steez as well as the moves of the SUPREMES and what not. Below another track, “Overtime”, from the same EP is an even better example of the U.S. GIRL group sound. And while I like these tracks, I must say that I am missing that outsider wobble of weirdness that made me like U.S. GIRLS in the first place.
