Review

Album titles are rarely accidental in their connotations. US Girls don't break from that with this record. 'Heavy Light' gives more than a nod to Franz Kafka, the literary icon concerned with the existential threat posed to our souls by post-industrialised orders. As a body of music, there's plenty here to invoke a sense of dread and unease, taking well-targeted pot shots at politics rather than scattergun approaches to commentary, and pairing those with tangible atmosphere.

Meg Remy at her finest, then, with the mastermind behind this project finding herself as part of a collective for the first time under this moniker, rather than genuine leader -Basia Bulat and Rich Morel co-write. The end product is an epic in every way, from the catchier-than-corona opening title number, with its hook-y strings and pop groove, to the industrial-edges of the percussion-vocal duet 'Red Ford Radio'.
