I think it’s fair to say that Tegan & Sara’s new album has a lot to live up to.
The duo’s 2013 LP Heartthrob is one of the best pop records from the past ten years (no understatement) and spawned genuine pop gem (Closer) after pop gem (I Was a Fool), so expectations for the Quin sisters’ upcoming album #8 Love You to Death are unquestionably high ahead of its 3 June release.
Thankfully, we don’t have to wait that long for the first glimpse of new music and the teaser for Boyfriend – their first single from the new era which will be released on 6 April – seems to suggest that the girls are continuing down the shimmering synth pop route which catapulted the pair into international consciousness. The artwork too is full of 80s goodness plus they’ve reunited with producer Greg Kurstin. What a gift.
