This week I wanted to honour the release of Tegan and Sara’s new banger, ‘Closer’ – about the innocence of young love. Tegan Quin tells Rolling Stone. “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.”

Go give it a listen – it’s ultra catchy and a great way to start the weekend!

Alas – there is no video for this synthy pop gem. And without a video, it’s just not MVV.

So to pay homage to how much I LOVE the direction T&S have been taking their music as of late (don’t get me wrong – I’m a fan of their earlier work as well) – but you just can’t be mad at Canada’s most adorable twins for hooking up with acts like Tiësto and Morgan Page. On that note, here’s some house-infused pop with lots of slightly-sweaty people in spandex lifting weights while T&S somehow make folding towels look sexy. Brilliant.
