Album Review Tegan and Sara - Love You to Death

Tegan and Sara are proving themselves to be a vital presence in pop right now​.

Rating:

The evolution of Tegan and Sara has been nothing short of fascinating. Having made their mark as heroic indie-rock twins in the early Noughties, each of their moves since have seen them branching out in new directions. Now, with their eighth album ‘Love You to Death’, the transformation is complete and they’re virtually unrecognisable.

The pair are a completely new entity, in the best possible way. Their latest comes littered with glorious synths and infectious Eighties-styled melodies, with ‘Boyfriend’, ‘Stop Desire’ and ‘Dying To Know’ all leading the charge. An album full of bubbly bangers that still carry integral messages of gender and sexuality, Tegan and Sara are proving themselves to be a vital presence in pop right now.
