U.S. Girls release new video for "Pearly Gates"
U.S. Girls

U.S. Girls has released a new song, and video for “Pearly Gates”. The track is off her forthcoming release, In a Poem Unlimited. 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, Remy explains further, “Some years back a story was recounted to me about a man attempting to convince a woman to engage in unprotected sex by saying, “Don’t worry, I’m really good at pulling out”. I thought this was a hilariously stupid thing to say and knew that one day I would build a song around this line.” The single’s celestial companion video was directed by Chrissy Jones, who stars alongside Fizzy.

In a Poem Unlimited is second U.S. Girls release for 4AD (in the U.S., the first for Royal Mountain Records in Canada) and also includes the singles, ‘Velvet 4 Sale’ and ‘Mad As Hell’. It is scheduled for release on 16th February. Remy’s sixth studio album was tracked in collaboration with the Cosmic Range, and features arrangements by Percival and Maxmilian Turnbull.
