In their latest album Heavy Light, U.S. Girls presents songs about relevant topics wrapped in songs that sound like they were ripped from another decade.
A mesmerising mix of sounds, instruments, languages, and even three short spoken interludes, Heavy Light engages every facet of listeners’ minds with its funky 70s-esque beats.
The album is unafraid to be vulnerable and raw, addressing weighty themes such as addiction and verbal abuse.
The song Woodstock ’99 is particularly haunting, as well as the emotionally-laden music video for Overtime.
In addition to powerful honesty and catchy tunes, Heavy Light also incorporates the best use of the tambourine that the music industry has seen in a long time.
