Tegan and Sara fans rejoice! The pop-rock sister duo has released the video for their latest single, “Closer”. The Calgary born pair has seen much musical evolution over their impressive fifteen year career. The latest development of their unique sound has a mainstream appeal, melding with the electronic pop glorification found in today’s Top 40. Despite being doused with synths lines and electronic drum beats atypical of their previous releases, signature harmonies and hooks remain recognizable. To compliment this mainstream track, they snagged noted director Issac Rentz, who has worked with the likes of Blink-182, Cage the Elephant, and Motion City Soundtrack. The video sets out to capture the youthful essence evoked in the song’s imagery. What better way to reminisce of teenage tomfoolery than with late night karaoke, living room fort-building, and cheeky girl-girl make outs?
Tegan and Sara’s new album “Heartthrob” is set for release January 29th, 2013. It will be the band’s seventh studio album. Check out their website for upcoming shows of their current North American tour with The Killers!
