“Neither Sarah or I are like that, so she was dating someone and this person was zeroing in on someone else she’d been seeing as long as Sarah. Sarah was like, ‘You’re treating me like a boyfriend here, you’re calling me every night, we’re going out all the time, let’s lock this down.’ I love that Sarah used the term ‘boyfriend,’ because I felt like I say that in my relationship, too.
Who are tegan and sara dating 2016
~by lawrence ferber ~ Are Canadian synthpop wonders Tegan and Sara trying to tell us something with their catchy new single, “Boyfriend?
” Has one of the openly queer, identical Quin twins switched teams since their multiple award-winning 2013 record, Heartthrob?
Tegan, older by eight minutes, assures that the answer is “No” and that the song and its title was inspired by her sister’s epiphany during a noncommittal, dating situation with a woman.
“We always joke that with lesbians, you go on one date and are monogamous and moving in together,” she shares.
So, it was like, if we’re going to do a video for every song, we should try to collaborate with artists like Jess Rona.” Relationships, and the way they have power to either cripple, transform, or both, is the overriding theme of .
Not just relationships with girlfriends—Tegan has been going steady for six months and counting, while Sara is approaching the six-year mark with her girlfriend—but also their connection with each other and the rough patches they’ve endured over the years.
“The title is a play on [the wedding vow] ‘till death do we part,’” Tegan elaborates.
Every one of the album’s ten songs will be accompanied by a video created in collaboration with “directors and artists who are queer, or transgender, or women, or people of color,” Tegan shares.
Gay artist/musician Seth Bogart, of Hunx & His Punx, directed the colorful, part-animated “U-Turn,” actress-turned-director Clea Du Vall helmed the humorous, quirky “Boyfriend” clip (Sara composed the score for Du Vall’s directorial debut, , which bowed at 2016’s Sundance Film Festival) and Jess Rona of the humorous dog grooming Instagram @Jess Rona Grooming, was behind the most recent clip, 100x.
