Tegan and Sara‘s upbeat new single “U-Turn” praises fan choreography in a new short film directed by Emma Higgins.
In the clip, a crew of young women, “The Ultimate Star Girls,” train for a showdown against a rival dance crow. But they get into a heated argument over the fine details of their dance moves, prompting one member to quit. “No one is in sync,” she pleads. “Trying your hardest isn’t what’s going to beat The Viper Boys.”
In a statement, Tegan and Sara said the film was inspired by classic girl crew nostalgia. “When you’re young, some of your strongest and most rewarding relationships are with your friends … The kind who support you to become who you really are … we want to celebrate those kinds of bonds.”
