Tegan and Sara’s ‘Closer’ is Best New Song of the Season

+

What do you want out of your music? Do you want to forget about the distractions of the real world, if only for the course of three odd minutes of bliss? Do you want to be inspired to move your entropy-plagued bones around by some inexplicable alchemy of ancient math-based poetry reverberating through our shared ancestry? Something like that that makes more sense perhaps?

Do you want to be reminded of the good parts of love? The bad? Do you want to be happy? Sad? Do you want to think? Not think? Do you mostly wish that Canadian synth-pop duo Tegan and Sara were singing this song about you? “All I’m thinking lately, is how to get you underneath me.”  How about all of those things at once? Are you hungry? Maybe this song could stop off and pick something up on its way home. Take off your shoes you look like you need to relax. Now put them back on because we’re going on an adventure! Long story short, this is the best song of the early music season.

That extra super secret next level chorus hook at 1:47? Yiiiikes.

Quick, go listen to this song 20 times in a row, and if you’re sick of it by then come on back and I’ll give you your money back. Also spike you in the heart with a wooden stake, because you have no soul.
