U.S. Girls Get Disco Down With ‘Tux’: Look + Listen

Preempting the release of Bless This Mess, their forthcoming full length due out Friday (2.24,) the U.S. Girls return with one more new song, “Tux (Your Body Fills Me, Boo),”

Complete with a glittering disco music video starring the dancer Libydo, the U.S. Girls’ Meg Remy is personified in the form of signing tuxedo with the lyrics “I was born to be worn/custom fit to make you feel legit.” “I was expensive, excessive/Now you’re too embarrassed to wear me round the house.” 

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the songstress addressed the origins of “Tux,” and how it was born out of the pandemic-era and people’s closets, designer clothes, consumption, and waste. Fascinated by the idea of singing from the perspective of a tuxedo, Meg said the idea reminded her of Sparks “like Ron Mal would come up with some silly tuxedo song.” “There’s definitely class stuff, waste issues — you could read any of that into it. But I think the main reading for me was, it’s just sad when something gets discarded that’s useful still, or could be given to someone else. And it either sits unused, or it sits in a garbage dump. And it’s not sad because I think the tuxedo has feelings; I think it’s sad because of what it says about us. But also, I mean, it’s just a hot song!”

Following the title track“So Typically Now,” and “Futures Bet.”“Tux” is the fourth title from Bless This Mess, an album that follows U.S. Girls’ celebrated 2020 album, Heavy Light. The act will play a handful of U.S shows starting April 13 in Montreal and wrapping on April 28 in Toronto.
