New Tegan and Sara Vids

I signed into YouTube yesterday and discovered Tegan and Sara posted a video for “Northshore”:

It’s so simple and cool. And I’d missed their video for “On Directing”:

When I listen to that song on headphones, it seriously chokes me up. I don’t know how. I can listen to it in the car and not have that experience. And the video just focuses that experience.

I love how these two songs emphasize the distinct ways Tegan and Sara write. Tegan’s “Northshore” is a fairly straight-ahead rock song with a bunch of sharp riffs and a sing-along chorus. Sara’s “On Directing” repeats one verse and one chorus but the dynamics of the song intensify what she’s saying.

I hope I didn’t mix them up. Love them.
