Slick and often decked out in all-black attire, Tegan and Sara have played it cool throughout most of the music videos for upcoming album Love You to Death, including those for “U-Turn” and “100x”. The Quin sisters brought that same calming charm to The Tonight Show on Tuesday for their first late-night appearance behind the LP.
Under the soft glow of technicolor lights, Tegan and Sara offered up a poised yet emotive performance of lead single “Boyfriend”, complete with synchronized harmonies and smoky stares.
Update — Thursday, May 19th at 3:37 p.m. CT: As Stereogum points out, Tegan and Sara did an acoustic version of “Boyfriend” as a Tonight Show web exclusive. The take sees their synthpop single stripped down to its most basic elements and offers a brief glimpse into what the sibling duo used to sound like some 15 years ago.
