U.S. Girls Advocate Erotic 'Work From Home' in NSFW Video

"Be your own boss / If times get tight, loosen up your thighs."

In the seductively soft-focus video for "Work at Home" by U.S. Girls, project mastermind Mehgan Remy urges listeners, "Don't get out of bed ... be your own boss ... If times get tight, loosen up your thighs." Coupled with director Chrissy Jones' footage of a pair of women dancing and lounging in their skivvies (alternately in whipped cream), it seems quite possible that the singer is advocating, ahem, the oldest profession in the world for those hit by economic hardship. Remy's quavering vocals rattle atop blaring organ and a skittering beat, making for a gaudy, off-kilter impression of Beach House. This decidedly NSFW clip is laced with VHS static and lo-fi effects, building to a colorful finish involving the aforementioned dessert-topper and the, um, "selling points" of one of the video's stars. Like "North on 45" before it, this song hails from U.S. Girls' October LP, GEM, produced by Remy's usual partner-in-crime Slim Twig and released on FatCat. Those two hit the road in February.
