Tegan and Sara Take Down Marriage Norms on One Knee in New ‘BWU’ Video

On their way to dropping music videos for all of Love You to Death, Tegan and Sara are back with one for the Greg Kurstin-produced “BWU.” Sara, taking the role of serial park proposer, takes to one knee several times during the clip only to reveal nothing but a ring-less, albeit lovely, red velvet box before her many conquests. Director Clea DuVall‘s visuals bring Sara’s nontraditional thoughts on marriage to life:

“I was happy when the Supreme Court ruling legalized same sex marriage in the U.S.A.,” Sara Quin told EW. “But I was also relieved that I could finally ‘come out’ as a person who actively dislikes the institution—specifically the assumption that by not participating in the ritual you are a deviant or unlikely to share the same common values as someone who does.”
