Tegan & Sara Boyfriend music video

Posted on

For their first album in over three years, Tegan & Sara are enlisting a little help from their Hollywood gal pals in the music video for the upcoming LP’s lead single, “Boyfriend.”

Tegan & Sara appear in the video alongside a handful of actresses, including Parenthood stars Sarah Ramos and Mae Whitman. While the clip’s narrative thread is thin, it features a series of vignettes involving Tegan & Sara as paper dolls, playing with a few dogs, and comforting a frazzled Rachel Antonoff, who appears to have a serious bout with a cluster of balloons.

The video was directed by actress Clea DuVall who, after starring in movies like Argo and The Grudge, first directed a series of interviews with Tegan & Sara to promote their 2013 album Heartthrob. Her feature directorial debut, The Intervention, for which Tegan & Sara worked on the original score, premiered in January at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.

“Boyfriend” will appear on the duo’s new album, Love You to Death, due out June 3. They previously released the promotional track “U-Turn” in support of the collection. Tegan & Sara will also embark on a six-month, worldwide summer tour beginning May 2 in Los Angeles.
