Tegan And Sara Try To “Stop Desire” In New Music Video

22 September 2016 12:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Tegan and Sara weren’t kidding when they said they were making a music video for every song off their latest album, Love You To Death. Nearly three weeks after dropping the clip for “White Knuckles,” the duo are back with a video for “Stop Desire.”

The clip marks the eighth video to release from the record, and the song is one of the catchiest in the band’s entire catalog. The video itself is light hearted and humorous, as Tegan and Sara go about their day whilst everyone around them has a bit of a dirty mind. Just when you thought doing laundry, heading to the post office, or taking a trip to the local farmers’ market were innocent activities, “Stop Desire” will make you think again. Allister Ann (Owl City, The Civil Wars) directed the video, and the band says that they wanted to “marry the high-energy” of »

Tegan And Sara Go Black And White In “White Knuckles” Video

29 August 2016 5:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Tegan and Sara have solidified themselves as one of the most consistent, most prolific groups in pop music over the past ten years, and their music video for “White Knuckles” is helping out their case even more.

The coolest thing to know going into this video is the realization that “White Knuckles” will serve as the seventh – yes, seventh – music video that Tegan and Sara have made in support of their latest album, Love You To Death, which was released earlier this summer. With three songs left on the record without a treatment, it’s a safe bet that they’ll be making videos for the whole thing, which is just a little bit insane.

“White Knuckles” is a black and white clip through its entirety, featuring Tegan and Sara traversing through a forest with an additional set of dancers. Directed by Minister Akins, it’s a video that matches the emotion of the song, »

‘BoJack Horseman’ Production Designer Lisa Hanawalt Reveals Her Unique and Beautiful Creative Process

28 August 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

As part of last year’s Xoxo Festival, Lisa Hanawalt of “BoJack Horseman” gave a moving presentation on her creative process and the years of work leading up her to breakthrough on the animated Netflix comedy. “I’m a bad artist. I’m lazy and untalented and bad” the production designer says as a self-deprecating introduction, though it’s quickly made clear that the emotions behind the statement are genuine: Hanawalt details the negative feelings that sometimes inspire her work, saying that “feeling like shit” is part of her process.

She then goes on to show the slogans for Subway (“food option”), Chevrolet (“I’m a big boy”) and McDonald’s (“I love something, is it this?”) that she would tweet at said corporations, partially as an exercise and partially to be a troll. »

Tegan and Sara’s ‘Fade Out’ Video Includes Footage From Indie Film ‘The Intervention’

23 August 2016 3:53 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Tegan and Sara are no strangers to movie soundtracks. The duo previously recorded the Oscar-nominated “Everything Is Awesome!!!” for “The Lego Movie” and now, have a killer synth pop song, “Fade Out,” for the indie film “The Intervention.” The sisters released the music video for their latest track, which features behind-the-scenes footage and bloopers from the upcoming drama.

The movie is directed and written by Clea DuVall and stars DuVall, Melanie Lynskey, Natasha Lyonne, Vincent Piazza, Jason Ritter, Ben Schwartz, Alia Shawkat and Cobie Smulders. The film, which premiered at Sundance this past January, follows three couples who hatch a plan to tell two good friends that they should get a divorce.

Charlie Chaplin Sampled in Coldplay’s New Video for ‘A Head Full of Dreams’ — Watch

19 August 2016 10:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Coldplay is known for their eccentric and artistic music videos that accompany their heartfelt singles. Following suit with their previous clips, their new video for the title track from “A Head Full of Dreams” features the band in a foreign country, this time riding their bikes through Mexico City.

Directed by James Marcus Haney and shot on an 8mm camera, the vintage and grainy looking video begins with a snippet from Charlie Chaplin’s 1940 film “The Great Dictator.” The speech is the same one that plays before each Coldplay show on their current world tour.

“I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor. That’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible,” the clip begins and then continues with other bits from the speech. “You, the people, have the power, the power to create machines, »

Tegan and Sara Team Up With ‘BoJack Horseman’ Illustrator For Mystical ‘Hang on to the Night’ Video

11 August 2016 3:07 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Musical duo Tegan and Sara released the music video for their track “Hang on to the Night,” which might catch the eye of “Bojack Horseman” fans. The two rock some major similarities – especially since the star of the clip is an animated horse – and that’s because the clip was directed and illustrated by Lisa Hanawalt, production designer and producer for the Netflix comedy. 

The singing-songwriting sisters reached out to Hanawalt and entrusted her with the creative direction for the video. “When [Lisa] sent me her drawings, I already felt very realized, as if she saw me,” Sara told Nylon. The song was a response to a number of sudden deaths in the sibling’s family and their anxiety about morality. The video explores, both literally and figuratively, the “regenerative” aspect of the night. “If you can manage to hang on, you can face another day,” Sara added.

Every Classic Tegan and Sara Song You Need to Hear Before Their New Album Comes Out

25 April 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Sisters and indie duo Tegan and Sara are set to release their eighth studio album, Love You to Death, on June 3. Yet, that doesn't mean you have to wait that long in order to enjoy some of the heart-throbbing indie pop hits they're known for. Though we have their first single, "Boyfriend," to tide us over, their new album makes for a perfect excuse to reminisce on Tegan and Sara's earlier work. The Canadian twins have been recording for more than a decade but have consistently written lyrics about unrequited love, loneliness, and crushes their entire career. As a Tegan and Sara megafan, I made it my mission to curate some of their most defining songs. Consider it the unofficial Tegan and Sara musical encyclopedia - whether you're a newbie or old-school fan of the pair. Remember, you will need to download the free Spotify software or app to listen to our playlists. »
