Tegan and Sara’s New Song “Closer”

I am a little atypically lukewarm on the new Tegan and Sara song, “Closer”, which consists only of the charming virtues of generic ’80s radio pop fare but too many heavy doses of all that decade’s misbegotten synthesizer excesses and generally synthetic cheesiness. If you didn’t tell me the decade and if I didn’t recognize Tegan and Sara’s voices, I would completely believe this was an almost thirty year old song. After being obsessively in love with every moment of their most recent two albums before this (The Con and Sainthood, I am now a little worried about what to expect from the new album. But I feel a little bit better though when I listen to the acoustic version, though even that is not fully able to overcome the chorus’s lyrical limitations.
