Speaking with Under The Radar
, Tegan called this Hearthrob
track a "devastatingly dark song" and "probably, right now, my favorite song on the record." She went on to describe how when the Quin sisters play this live "the whole audience immediately starts to pay attention in a completely different way."
"We were just in New York playing a headlining show," she said, "and when we started playing that song people cheered for, like, a full minute. I was like, 'What's happening right now? Why are people still clapping?' And Sara and I were wildly embarrassed because we weren't in control of the situation. I just kept looking at Sara and she was like, 'What's going on?' It was this awkward moment, but Sara just fu--ing goes for it. I mean, it's at the top of her range, so she's just belting it out the entire time."
