Tegan & Sara have released a new track with American producer Matthew Dear. It's called "Bad Ones," and it's a scintillating synth-pop bop perfect for late summer. The sisters previously collabed with Dear on "Pale Shelter," a cover of Tears for Fears.
Sara Quin said this of the new track in Stereogum's report:
“I heard the piece of music Matthew sent through while driving to get a haircut in West Hollywood. I always feel like an interloper on that side of town and the phrase ‘freaking out and paralyzed’ was suddenly looping in my head. I couldn’t stop thinking about how finding someone who loves the more complicated parts of you is a relief, especially when they’re not turned off by your socially awkward insecurities or tendencies to retreat inward. Matthew’s music has always been my go-to for late night bus rides in headphones and I still geek out that we made this together!”
Tegan and Sara are currently on their Con X Tour, tickets for which are available here.
"Working with Tegan and Sara reminds me the best songs are born from an open and free process. Often times, we need to get out of our own way to let the magic happen, and this song is a bold reminder of that.”
