Tegan and Sara’s new album Love You to Death will drop June 3, and the twin sisters have been trickling out morsels over the last few months. First a teaser for lead single “Boyfriend,” then the full song plus a music video, another single in “U-Turn” and now a third sampling with a music video for “100x.”
While “Boyfriend” and “U-Turn” are the type of synth-driven pop perfection we’ve come to love from these women, “100x” is a bit more piano-based melancholic torch tune that sears with emotion.
The lyrics alone will pull at your heartstrings, but Tegan and Sara took that a step further with the video by starring a few scene-stealing puppies, courtesy of renowned dog groomer Jess Rona.
“I met Jess Rona at a Mafia party in LA and we hit it off immediately,” Sara Quin revealed. “An actor, musician and dog groomer, ‘JessRonaGrooming’ became my favorite Instagram account. I constantly direct people to her beautiful, heartbreaking mini-music videos of her furry clients, because they’re an endless delight. It was a true honor to have her do a long form version for our song 100x.”
