U.S. Girls presents a new song, ‘Pearly Gates’, from her forthcoming album, In a Poem Unlimited out Friday 16 February. The single’s celestial companion video was directed by Chrissy Jones, who stars alongside Fizzy. Watch below!
On ‘Pearly Gates’, Meg Remy describes a woman who wishes to seduce St. Peter to secure entry to the heavenly realm, with mixed results. Featuring vocalist James Baley and with music written by long-time U.S. Girls collaborator Louis Percival and performed by Toronto-based The Cosmic Range.
In a Poem Unlimited features dark meditations reflecting charged atmospheres that precede and follow acts of violence. Many of the songs are character studies of women grappling with power. Remy also rallies against the public lies told by political and religious leaders, and questions the lies we tell ourselves in order to survive. In A Poem Unlimited is available to pre-order here.
