Tegan and Sara "Boyfriend"
Published Apr 07, 2016After recently exploring their ever-shifting "hair history" in a comedy sketch, Canadian pop twins Tegan and Sara are forging ahead with the first preview from their forthcoming full-length, Love You to Death. Plastered with massive, electro-spiked hooks and a love triangle narrative, the tune is called "Boyfriend."
The single was premiered today (April 7) through Matt Wilkinson's Beats 1 program, following an interview with Sara Quinn about the genesis of the track. She revealed that the song stems from a personal situation where she was dating a woman who was still somewhat involved with a boyfriend. The song has Sara trying to lock it down.
"Kiss me like your boyfriend" is sung over a swell of chipper synth melodies and a steady four-on-the-floor beat, with the singer adding of her plight, "I don't want to be your secret anymore."
You can stream the song loud via the player below, while Love You to Death lands June 3.
