Riff: Tegan and Sara – “Shudder to Think”

Oct 23, 2013

Sometimes in this world you don’t find your way/Strangers in the street, they just look right past

from Shudder to Think lyrics by Tegan and Sara

Picking up where the ‘all killer no filler’ of Heartthrob left off, this contribution to The Dallas Buyers Club soundtrack is another irresistible 80s synth-pop homage which finds the Canadian siblings recoiling at the image of being left entirely on their own; [LISTEN].
