Terrible Canadian Indie Pop
How can anyone possibly like Tegan and Sara? This song, for instance, is just incredibly godawful. Her voice is grating and fake, as if she’s not actually singing in her real voice, but instead impersonating a funny voice and singing with that. And while I understand and appreciate simple things, the piano line here is so uncomplicated and uninteresting that I’m convinced a three year old wrote it on a toy piano. The lyrics are the worst sort of vapid blathering posing as wit. “I’m not unfaithful but I’ll stray.” They probably think they’re so clever for that one.
It’s unfathomable how these two can be critical darlings. I’m gonna go listen to some Zeppelin and try to get this song out of my head.
