U.S. Girls - 'Mad As Hell'
U.S. Girls : 'Mad As Hell'
5th October 2017

Meg Remy, the unapologetic pop revisionist known as U.S. Girls, has just dropped a new video for her song ‘Mad As Hell’.  The wall-of-sound arrangement and throbbing disco beat along with Remy’s “radiant voice” (Pitchfork) make a candy-coated Trojan horse for her powerful call to action for pacifism and impassioned critique of military spending.  The video, which is directed by Remy and Emily Pelstring pieces together historic patriotic and military imagery.  Remy performs throughout the video duplicated in synchronized dance moves flipping off her subjects recalling backup dancers of ‘60s pop girl groups.  ‘Mad As Hell’ is off U.S. Girls’ follow up to 2015’s celebrated, 4AD-backed album Half Free.  Stay tuned for more details on the album.
