Before appearing on The Late Late Show with James Corden last night, Tegan and Sara jokingly promised that they wouldn’t even be singing. “We don’t sing anymore,” they explained in a video posted to Twitter, in which the duo also promised their first-ever stand-up comedy set.
Well, we didn’t get that set but we did get a dazzling performance of “Boyfriend”, the lead single off Tegan and Sara’s new album Love You To Death. As Katherine Flynn writes in her review, the track “bounces, burbles, and shimmers”, and the newly pop-focused pair managed to bring that same energy to the late-night stage.
