U.S. Girls - "Mad As Hell" (Singles Going Steady)

"Mad As Hell" is a stark reminder that some aspects of the US haven’t changed much, no matter the resolution and color vibrancy of our current tech.

U.S. Girls - "New Age Thriller" (Singles Going Steady)

Cryptic, moody, and possessed by a nearly Lynchian sense of unease, "New Age Thriller" is a demented avant-pop vignette.

U.S. Girls - "Navy & Cream" (Singles Going Steady)

Music

U.S. Girls - "Window Shades" (video) (Singles Going Steady)

U.S. Girls' debut Half Free releases later this month. Meanwhile, their new single is constructed around a beat from Gloria Ann Taylor's disco song "Love Is a Hurting Thing".

U.S. Girls: GEM

GEM wants to be engaging and warm, and excite the listener with all sorts of sounds from pop’s past, as much as it is a garish piece of nightmarish art, that keeps one pushed back.
