U.S. Girls – “Rosebud”

Virginia Croft

Meg Remy’s project, U.S. Girls, released her sixth album last month, In A Poem Unlimited (4AD). Her musical career has grown immensely, ten years ago marking her first release– Remy’s use of a four-track recorder to capture what she referred to as “instant expressions.” As her previous work has anticipated, this release was exhilarating, providing a much-needed breath of fresh air into the new-wave chill-pop scene.

Most recently, U.S. Girls have released a video for track “Rosebud,” providing a pleasing escape from everyday humdrum, four minutes of total musical bliss and visual escape. Focusing on pet-shop birds, it’s an interesting take on the concept of knowing when to hold on, and when to let go. The vibrant hues of the various birds are juxtaposed against the stark, bare whiteness of winter, similarly as one bird’s owner sports bright fabrics of orange and green against his mostly brown home.
