There’s something about Tegan and Sara’s music that I can’t resist, but I don’t know why. It might be the lyrics, the harmony of their voices, the catchy pulse of their tunes; I really have no idea, but you know what? It doesn’t really matters. What’s important is that their latest record, Heartthrob (2013), has the attributes of a triumph: captivating, powerful, glorious. Tegan and Sara’s songwriting abilities have reached a new level, the songs are impressively well crafted: they are precise and surprising, yet also predictably pleasing. Many critics have referred to this work as a departure, which is a fair thing to say considering the shift in regards to the new sound they have now embraced. Nonetheless, it stays loyal to their essence. And I still find, more than ever, Tegan and Sara’s music irresistible. This music is a joy –which often comes close to greatness.
