It’s been three years since we last heard from Canadian sister duo Tegan and Sara, but they’re back. Dropping a new track entitled Closer earlier this week, the sisters seem to be chasing a more synth driven power pop sound. Under all the synthesisers and danceable drums is one stupidly catchy melody, which pushes some pretty saucy lyrics. The cover art is a winner, as well.
Astronautalis blends hip hop, talking blues and occasional indie rock synths in his music, which is coupled with lyrics that almost seem poetic. The single, Contrails, is a collaboration with Tegan Quin of Tegan and Sara.
