U.S. Girls’ captivating “Rosebud” video is for the birds (watch)


U.S. Girls‘ new album, In a Poem Unlimited, is out next week (2/16 via 4AD) and while much of it bares the muscular presence of her new live band, “Rosebud” is a little more like the sound of previous records. Co-written by remix guru Rich Morel, it’s more outright synthy than anything else of the record, with a killer, understated beat and electro bass line, plus some swoony strings allowing for Meg Remy’s vocals to really shine. It’s my favorite song on what may be my favorite album of the year so far.

They’ve just released a captivating video for “Rosebud” which mostly stars a group of charismatic birds, one of whom is freed from its cage by its keeper (played by Max Turnbull, aka Slim Twig). Meg edited the gorgeously shot video which was directed by Alex Kingsmill. Watch below.

Today in NYC, Meg Remy is hosting that unique In a Poem Unlimited listening event (RSVP is now closed) and U.S. Girls will soon be on on tour, including stops at SXSW and Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right on April 13 with Gold Dime (ex-Talk Normal) (tickets).
