" Heartthrob bears the true hallmarks of a Tegan and Sara record. The songs are terrific, full of lust and longing and regret, bouncing between the familiar poles of erotic rapture (“Closer”) and post-breakup despondency (“How Come You Don't Want Me”). But the lyrics seem less confessional than usual, a little more universal and philosophical, as if Tegan and Sara are reflecting on the experience of passion rather than undergoing its ecstasies and torments in real time. For every urgent outburst—“Does your body shake when you get around me? Does your body ache when you think about me?” (“I Couldn't Be Your Friend”)—there's a moment of calm reflection, a retrospective clarity about past relationships: “When I think of you I think of your skin golden brown from the sun/Your arms outstretched your hair cut shorter than it'd been /But still blowing in the wind” (“Drove Me Wild”). There's a hard-won maturity in these lyrics, hidden beneath the glossy surface of the music, and a willingness to tackle subjects beyond the confines of romance. This is especially evident in the striking song, “I'm Not Your Hero,” which examines the difficulty of maintaining artistic independence and personal autonomy in a politicized world: “I'm not their hero but that doesn't mean I wasn't brave/I never walked the party line doesn't mean that I was never afraid.”
Heartthrob gives us Tegan and Sara in their superhero tights and capes, ready to conquer the pop universe, and the new outfits suit them just as well as their old-school jeans and T-shirts. Don't be surprised if you hear these songs in an arena, or blasting on a car radio, or leaking from a teenager's earbuds on a bus. That's what they're made for. And don't worry if you experience a brief sense of disorientation the first couple of times you hear them, a momentary inability to put a name to those familiar voices. By the time you realize who you're listening to, you'll already be singing along."
