Tegan and Sara Talk Intelligent Pop, Touring With fun. & Being Macklemore’s ‘Two Little Gay Friends’Tegan and Sara
When Tegan and Sara released their first album, Under Feet Like Ours, in 1999, pop was Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears. Fourteen years later and the twins Quin have broadened their sound, so much so that their seventh album Heartthrob meets 21st century pop at its frontier. But Tegan and Sara is a different, some would say smarter, kind of pop music.
“I feel like now you can be pop and you can be real and good,” Tegan recently told Radio.com.
The change in tides became clear when the duo released Heartthrob back in February, which debuted at No. 3 selling 49,000 copies in its opening week, according to Billboard. It sold almost two times more than their previous album, 2009′s Sainthood, which debuted all the way at No. 21.
Of course the chart success is nice, but it hasn’t fazed the duo too much. It hasn’t even convinced them that pop is what they want to be doing for the rest of their career.
