Half Free is an album by U.S. Girls, the solo project of Toronto-based American musician Meghan Remy. It was released on September 25, 2015 through 4AD record label. Inspired by Sebastian Junger’s memoir War and described by its press release as “an honest and lyrically jarring exploration of emotions, drenched in a bath of raw beats and loops,” the album features contributions from Remy's husband Slim Twig, producer Onakabazien, Ben Cook of Fucked Up, Amanda Crist of Ice Cream and Tony Price.
Receiving a critical acclaim upon its release, the album garnered a Juno Award nomination for Alternative Album of the Year at the Juno Awards of 2016, and was a shortlisted finalist for the 2016 Polaris Music Prize.
Described as an "electronic art pop record, Half Free maintains the accessibility and increased production values of the previous album, Gem (2012), while revisiting some of the tape loop experimentation and dark subject matter of U.S. Girls' older works. The album also incorporates a wide array of musical styles, including disco, reggae, glam rock, pop, outsider music, chamber music, illbient and new wave.
