The unstoppable twin sister duo Tegan and Sara have unveiled the first warning shot off their forthcoming album. The single titled I’m Not Your Hero demonstrates the pair’s new found pop sensibilities without losing any of their indie integrity.
Putting all their attention into album number 7, Heartthrob, as it has been titled, is set for a release early 2013. News on the release has been coming in dribs and drabs as the sisters report in from the studio, though this marks the first audible experience so far from their time at work.
The track itself contains the melodies you’d expect from Tegan and Sara, but also reveals their new found affection towards indie pop. Explaining to MTV’s The Hive, Tegan Quinn commented “We’re solidly putting our feet down in the pop world.” The folks from Prefix mag are correct, however, when they say that long term fans needn’t worry about the change of direction. The awkward, folkish vocals and deeply personal subject matter are still the main pillars of their tunes.
Check out I’m Not Your Hero below. Feel free to express yourself about the track, and get ready for a hellova’ album!
