In anticipation of their forthcoming album ‘Love You to Death’, Tegan and Sara have released debut single ‘Boyfriend’.
‘Boyfriend’ has already received rave reviews from fans and press alike. Vulture exclaims: “Are there two greater pop songwriters walking this Earth than Tegan & Sara Quin? Not many. And oh baby, they’re finally back with more synth-pop perfection.”
SPIN calls the track a “swirling, lushly synthesized confection (handclaps and a f**king killer chorus included),” and Rolling Stone proclaims: “The synths beam and blare over thundering percussion, while Sara Quin belts the song’s charmingly cheeky and lovestruck hook.”
We think it’s a short, sharp, sublime song, with a totally queer message about living and loving openly. “I don’t want to be your secret anymore,” Sara sings to a girl she’s kissing. We’ve all been there, haven’t we?
Fans who pre-order Love You to Death on iTunes in advance of its June 3 release will instantly receive ‘Boyfriend’ and another new song, ‘U-turn’. Listen to ‘Boyfriend’ below!
