Tegan And Sara have premiered the music video for their song “Goodbye, Goodbye” off of this year’s Heartthrob. The video is a three and a half minute exploration of the myriad ways you can rid yourself of a terrible ex in the 21st century — none of which involve speaking face-to-face. Sara said the following about the song and accompanying video directed by Natalie Rae Robinson:
“Goodbye, Goodbye” is a sound off about rejection and the empowerment of shutting someone out after a break-up, but it’s also an acknowledgement of the distorted nature of intimacy that comes from communicating complex emotions through a cell phone or email. In a way we learn more about ourselves than each other when we interact this way. Our phones and computers are just mirrors for us to reflect again and again.

UPDATE: The Quins have also teamed up with YouTube.com/ThePetCollective to recreate with “Closer” with dogs. You know you wanna watch that, too:
