It seems like Tegan and Sara couldn’t possibly pull any more emotions out of fans when it comes to I Was A Fool, their third single off 2013′s Heartthrob, but with today’s premiere of the official video, I stand correct. Actually, I sit. Standing and typing is tricky.
After wowing fans with their Travis Hopkins-directed lyric videos for Closer and Now I’m All Messed Up, the first two releases from Heartthrob, Tegan and Sara teamed up with Hopkins again to release an exciting and dramatic lyric video for I Was A Fool.
Going in a completely different direction from the retro-inspired Closer and the beautifully inked Now I’m All Messed Up, I Was A Fool features the duo as the background to a young woman’s night spent wandering the city while full of heartbreak. With the lyrics snuck discreetly into the landscape, the visuals can at times easily be mistaken for the official music video.
Today’s release of the official music video for I Was A Fool shows the duo serenading a heartbroken Mae Whitman, who has most recently been seen in 2012′s The Perks of Being A Wallflower. The actress relives her tormented relationship through old records and post cards before finally breaking out of a relationship that drags her down.
From their album Heartthrob, check out the premiere of Tegan and Sara’s official video for I Was A Fool.Tweet
