Watch LGBTQ Youth Impersonate Bowie, Prince, Madonna in Tegan and Sara's "Faint of Heart" Video
Published Jul 28, 2016Tegan and Sara released their latest LP Love You to Death earlier this year, and they're keeping the momentum behind it going strong with a new video for another album cut.
We've already seen the clips for "Boyfriend," "U-Turn," "100x" and "BWU," but the latest track to be treated to some matching visuals is "Faint of Heart."
It was directed by Devon Kirkpatrick and features a cast of youths from the LGBTQ community impersonating iconic musicians like David Bowie, Prince, Madonna, Grace Jones and Elvis. The Quin twins even get their own mini-me's.
"First and foremost we just hope it reaches LGBTQ people and makes them feel realized," Tegan Quin told Teen Vogue, explaining that the video was shot the day following the tragic Orlando shootings. "Some of the themes of the video — mentorship, finding community, expression, bravery — are things you see so many LGBTQ youth actively pursuing in order to thrive. We need to be strong against a lot of hate in this world."
