Tegan and Sara‘s latest album Heartthrob is out today here in the U.S. This one may just be our favorite release from the Canadian duo yet! Crafty hooks, slick synth laden production – what more could we ask for?
The girls have slowly been releasing tracks from the set over the past few weeks and not a single one disappoints. Listen to The Knocks remix of lead single ‘Closer’ below.
There’s something about Canada that grooms it’s musically inclined citizens to go on to create nearly perfectly infectious pop tunes. Twin sister team Tegan and Sara are just one example of this, which they’ve proved time and again.
The duo are gearing up for the release of Heartthrob in January of ’13 and so far we’ve heard two tracks from the release ‘Closer’ and ‘I’m Not Your Hero.’ I absolutely love both. Listen to ‘…Hero’ below.
After the glorious Flying Overseas, Theophilus London has once again impressed me with his latest offering entitled Why Even Try. This time the smooth vocals accompanying London‘s rhymes are provided by Sara Quin of Tegan and Sara.
The track is taken from his forthcoming EP Lovers Holiday which drops on February 8th. London had this to say about the release…
“I wrote this EP, 5 songs about modern love, to document what love is in 2011. I grew up on Gaye, O’Jays & Jackson 5; amazing music that when you heard it, you understood the message coming across. Positive or negative, that message was love.” – Theophilus London

Based on the two first singles and the names he lists as influences, I expect we’re in for a treat with the rest of the EP! – Camille
