U.S. Girls addresses consumerism with “4 American Dollars” video

“4 American Dollars” is taken from U.S. Girls’ upcoming album Heavy Light, due out March 6 on 4AD.

U.S. Girls, the Toronto collective headed by Meg Remy, has just shared the second single from the upcoming album Heavy Light, which will be out next month. Despite its warm and funky arrangements, “4 American Dollars” is actually a pamphlet against excessive consumerism and the American dream. It’s not the first time that they use this chiaroscuro combination as their infectious disco track “M.A.H.” was a protest song about war and Obama. The accompanying colourful visuals were directed and edited by Emily Pelstring and Meg Remy. Watch below.
