Hansen’s team pick:
Yesterday (on their birthday! Happy belated birthday, Quins!) Tegan and Sara teased us with a little preview of their new single, “Closer” and I thought it wouldn’t be until next week that we could hear it but rejoice, because it’s up on Rolling Stone and it’s good!
Tegan told Rolling Stone,
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 heartbreak… These relationships existed in a state of sexual and physical ambiguity. Is there anything more romantic than that?
I’m right there with you, Tegan. “Closer” is the perfect combination of fun pop and their signature indie sound. I love it. I’ve listened to it about twelve times already and there’s no end in sight.
Head on over to Rolling Stone and listen to the song! What do you guys think? Want to have a dance party?
