Tegan & Sara – ‘Closer’
Released: September 25, 2012
In which Tegan '&' Sara team up with Greg 'God Among Men' Kurstin to turn out a boshing effervescent pop anthem that sounds a bit like Marina and three to four of your other favourite female singers of song. It will probably make some Tegan & Sara fans want to cry in a bad way but more importantly it makes us want to cry in a good way, so moaners can keep their thoughts to themselves thanks very much.
We'd say the production here is 9/10 and the song itself is somewhere in the region of a 7. Mind you, we thought the latter was a 6 on first listen, so perhaps by tomorrow it will be a 10, therefore perfect. We will keep you posted.
The best bit is when you think the chorus is about to slam in then it doesn't, but then it does.
IMAGINE IF THE NEW GIRLS ALOUD SINGLE SOUNDED LIKE THIS.
(There's some chat about it on Rolling Stone if you're interested.)
