Cranked-up to the nines synth-bursts, cascading plunks, and a curled-lipped hint of Madonna creeping around in their verse delivery, Tegan and Sara are shooting for the bullseye. Role-flipping is clearly at play in ‘Boyfriend’ – from the fetching dogtooth suits on the artwork, to the decidedly gender-bending lyrics.
But with the effortless pizazz that brilliant pop music can muster instantly out of thin air, ‘Boyfriend’ dishes up all of it its conspiratorial subversion with cheerful nonchalance, and a killer chorus to boot. Smirking, bubbly great fun, this might just be one of Tegan and Sara’s best bangers to date.
