Tegan and Sara teamed up once again with animator Travis Hopkins to create the lyric video for their second single Now I’m All Messed Up off the duo’s 2013 disc Heartthrob. The new video perfectly captures the despair and longing in the emotional track, using ink and water over top of scroll font for the lyrics. The sisters previously worked with Hopkins to create their retro lyric video for Closer.
Sara Quinn posted the following message, along with the new video, on the band’s Tumblr page. Check out why the group chose Now I’m All Messed up as their new single and watch the beautiful lyric video below!
As soon as we started playing the songs from Heartthrob live at shows, “Now I’m All Messed Up” emerged as a major fan favourite. It’s nearly impossible to not get caught up in the feelings of the song when performing it, so it’s very fun to see the entire crowd be drawn in as we lay it all out there on the stage! Things get emotional!
We wanted to bring that same level of emotion to the lyric video for the song, and we really think we achieved that with the unique ink and water treatment that brings to mind writing a good old fashioned heartbreaking letter and sobbing all over it! We were excited to be working with Travis Hopkins again who created the lyric video for Closer, he did such a great job, we love it and hope you do too!
