Tegan & Sara – “I Couldn’t Be Your Friend”

“I Couldn’t Be Your Friend” is another upbeat tear-jerker from Tegan & Sara’s upcoming Heartthrob. Based on what we’ve heard so far from the record, it would be fine to assume that the duo’s album title is named for the pain-word “throb” and not its typical definition in conjunction with “heart.” Unless the rest of the record contains lyrics that match the gleaming power pop we’ve already been privy to, salute the Quin sisters for their clever play-on-words. Check out the track over at NPR.

Heartthrob is out 1/29 on Warner Bros.
