End Music Discovery: Tegan & Sara - Closer
Well - this is a different sounding Tegan & Sara than we are used to.
Everyone's favorite cute as a bugs ear Canadian twins have swapped their acoustic guitars for keyboards and a decidingly poppier sound - at least for this new track "Closer" which will be on their new record out in January.
Sara Quinn calls the song a ‘let’s get it on’ track
Tegan adds: “…Although I do imagine that this would be an okay song to make out to, all I intended was to write something sweet that reminded the listener of a time before sex, complicated relationships, drama and heart break. In short, I was writing about my youth. A time when we got closer by linking arms and walking down our school hallway or talked all night on the telephone about every thought or experience we’d ever had. It wasn’t necessarily even about hooking up or admitting your feelings back then. In fact, that rarely happened. It was the anticipation of something maybe happening that was truly exciting and satisfying. We were perpetually getting closer, yet we rarely got physical with one another, if ever. These relationships existed in a state of sexual and physical ambiguity. Is there anything more romantic than that?”
What do you think?
