      Don’t Rush is a song off of Tegan and Sara’s latest album Sainthood, released in 2009. It’s one of my favourites off of this album, although the entire album as a whole is very enjoyable. This song is different from some of their previous songs in that it’s a lot more like mainstream rock than their previous fare. It’s a welcome change, and it’s interesting to see their take on this style.

      The heavy synth utilized in this song makes the song extremely catchy and I love it. It brings life to the song in its pulses, and makes you want to get up and dance to it. The drums have this way of getting your


      head to nod along with the beat, because they’re rather heavily featured yet not too intrusive in the song.

      The lyrics aren’t as emotionally intense as some other Tegan and Sara songs, but still manage to worm into your heart. The chorus hooks you into the song, and the words are simple but still heartbreaking. I also love how there’s a section of the song that’s spoken, and a bit repetitive, because it’s like a chant that she’s trying to get into her head, but unsuccessfully. This song is written by Tegan, and I love how her lyrics are usually quite simple on the surface, but complicated once you really stop to think about what ...


      • they mean.

        Tegan’s vocals feature much more heavily in this song than others, and Sara’s contribution is not very noticeable. Tegan’s voice has this emotional, wavering quality to it that makes it very suitable for this song, as it’s not so much about hitting the right notes than delivering the right amount of emotion to convey the meaning of the song. However, Sara does a good job on this song as well, especially during the spoken word parts of this song. As you might be able to tell, I’m more of a Tegan fan than a Sara fan.

        When they play this song live, that’s when the song truly shines. Tegan admits that it’s very

        difficult to play live, but when they do manage to get it it’s an astounding piece of music. It really seems to embody what live music is supposed to be about.

        This song has been stuck in my head for over a week, and I find snatches of it playing in my head when I’m daydreaming. It’s a very enjoyable track, and well worth the $1.29 on iTunes, although it’s much cheaper to just buy the whole album. I’d definitely recommend this song to any rock fan, especially alternative rock fans. This is a must have in the music library of any Tegan and Sara fan, as it is classic Tegan and Sara in alternative rock style.
