Tegan and Sara "Closer" / "I'm Not Your Hero" (acoustic session)
Tegan and Sara will unveil their new LP, Heartthrob, in the new year, and the songs released so far suggest that the successful Canadian twins will be heading in a synth-pop direction. To contrast the studio versions of their new tunes, the duo have just shared a new acoustic session.

This stripped-down Alter the Press! acoustic session includes two songs, with the sisters joined by a keyboardist and an additional guitarist. "Closer" is transformed from an electro-driven banger into a campfire-ready folk pop number, while the synth ballad "I'm Not Your Hero" is turned into something similarly earthy.

Heartthrob is due out in January. See the band's tour schedule, which includes North American dates with the Killers, over at their official website.
