U.S. Girls – the nom de plume of North American multi-disciplinary and experimental pop artist Meg Remy – takes her latest single, So Typically Now, out on the dance floor. Collaborating with Eli Escobar, the NY house and disco evangelist spins the original synth-pop banger into a hard, bassy slice of dance nostalgia – referencing Paradise Garage and beyond.
