After teasing it yesterday, U.S. Girls have returned with the sweaty synthpop banger "So Typically Now," which comes attached to a Meg Remy-directed video that finds the bandleader communicating with dancing construction workers through their phone screens. 

The song is a funky, burbling and soulful dance song that finds Meg Remy and co. in a more synthetic mode than they've been for the past few records. It's a rallying cry against landlords, rent hikes and the wealthy who flee from struggling cities, with Remy singing: "Traitors with loans they run this show / So you sold off your condo / You're shutting it down / They're drawing it out / You always get what you want though."

The song was written by Ryland Blackinton, Alex Frankel and Meg Remy and was produced by Blackinton and Frankel. It features powerhouse backing vocals from Kyle Kidd. 

On social media, Remy said the song "travelled many years to reach your ears. You could call it a banger. You could call it a strut."

U.S. Girls' last album was 2020's Heavy Light. Check out the video for "So Typically Now" below.
