Closer (Remixes) single | Sire | 2013

Yeasayer remixed ‘Closer’ by Calgary’s identical twins Tegan and Sara Quin. The result is a frantic, jerking sprawl of electro beats and buzzing synths that seem to be operating on the very edge of control while retaining a hypnotic, human quality. Tegan and Sara offer a delicate, warm and sensual delivery, full of yearning, desire, Eighties New Wave vocal reminiscences and sweet harmonies. Yeasayer’s approach to reconstructing and redeveloping the track’s music offsets that longing with a more desperate, needful edge, like a horny malfunctioning robot with its circuits focussed on one singular deviant goal.
