Description & Features+

"U.S. Girls - Half Free" - "Half Free" is Remy's first album for 4AD and is her most realised yet, focusing on characters in everyday struggles, with narratives inspired by the work of director John Cassavetes and Bruce Springsteen. Throughout, Remy explores themes relating to abuse and gender inequality, whether the broken wife in 'Sororal Feelings' (a track loosely based on the character Nora Bass in Michael Ondaatje's Coming Through Slaughter), or the exasperated war widow in 'Damn That Valley', soundtracked by its intoxicating combination of thick dub flavours and Wall of Sound dramatics. Other tracks include the glam stomp of 'Sed Knife', a minimal song poem (which first appeared on a 7” back in 2012) recast here as a Misfits flavoured rocker; and the lush Cocteau Twins-laced 80s soul of 'Navy & Cream'. Elsewhere, "Half Free" finds Remy ripping into Gloria Ann Taylor's 70s deep-cut disco to create the wondrously dramatic heartbreak of 'Window Shades' (written after Meg watched the Katy Perry movie, Part of Me), before closing on 'Woman's Work'; a nagging, arpeggio-laced ode to Moroder that picks at themes of beauty, anxiety and paralysis in the face of ageing. "Half Free" is an enchanting document of life at the point when it feels most on its knife-edge.
