Meg Remy's politically incisive and sonically adventurous 2018 album In A Poem Unlimited was a highlight of that year for many, deservedly receiving a solid placement on Pitchfork's best albums of the 2010s roundup list. Fans can look forward to a host of new material from the Toronto-based multi-media artist's project U.S. Girls in the near future, with a new record named Heavy Light revealed today to be launching in March, heralded by lead single 'Overtime'. Shifting focus to personal narratives from the character studies of In A Poem Unlimited, Heavy Light was produced and recorded live by Remy in collaboration with twenty musicians, who also contributed their own childhood recollections to spoken word interludes scattered throughout the album. The self-directed minimal clip for get-up-and-go first single 'Overtime' pairs emotionally charged foot-stomping soul with stunning digitally manipulated dance work by Andrea Nann of Dreamwalker Dance Company, experience the video here...
