If you thought going to the post office or laundromat couldn’t possibly rev up your sex drive, Tegan and Sara are here to prove you wrong.
In the synthpop duo’s new video for “Stop Desire,” they manage to find sensuality in the most mundane places. Everyone here has a dirty mind, including Late Late Show bandleader Reggie Watts, who makes a hilarious cameo sultrily licking stamps. There are also plenty of phallic fruits and cat-printed underwear thrown in for good measure (bow chicka wow wow).
Tegan and Sara explained the video’s inspiration on Facebook, writing, “We wanted to marry the high-energy and colorful vibe of Stop Desire’s production with the longing sexual undertones of the song’s lyrics for this video. Director Allister Ann created a colorful world for us where we go throughout our day straight-faced while encountering characters finding sensuality in every day things.”
“Stop Desire” is the eighth track from Tegan and Sara’s Love You to Death to receive the visual treatment. The duo have said they plan to release a video for each song on the album, meaning they only have two more to go.
