Stream: U.S. Girls drop their long-awaited album ‘Heavy Light’

'Heavy Light' is heavily influenced by jazz and '70s pop

U.S. Girls have released their highly-anticipated seventh studio album Heavy Light.

Led by American musician Meghan Remy, the experimental pop project U.S. Girls collaborates with several U.S. and Canadian-based artists for songwriting and production. The album included over 20 collaborators this time around, including in-session musicians like E Street Band saxophonist Jake Clemons and co-writers Basia Bulat and Rich Morel.

The 13-track album focuses heavily on personal narratives, each song a beautiful medley of ’70s-inspired pop and jazzy influences, creating a captivating and fulsome LP. The opening track “4 American Dollars” is carried by a funky electric guitar while backing vocals add a fun, dynamic element to the track. The powerful “Born To Lose” brings in prominent drums, sweet twinkling instrumentals and choir-like harmonies create a nearly-angelic song. “Woodstock ’99” slows things down with gentle piano as Remy’s voice powers along.
