”When we first started out in the [music] industry, people would try to define our relationship or talk about our relationship.It was almost like people would tell the story about how we have been.” The Canadian band Tegan & Sara — fronted by lesbian identical twins but also including other non-related supporting musicians — are not, as Tegan puts it, an ”overly twin-y band.” The band’s 29-year-old leaders have worked hard to keep the focus on the music, characterized by tight vocal harmonies, clever lyrics, cute melodies and generally playful pop sensibilities, with the occasional spark of punk heat.Lots of twins and lots of gay people apparently.” The Quin twins were closer before their teenage years, says Tegan. ”We were really nervous kids, so we really banded together [after the divorce] and we really loved each other and looked out for one another until we got to our teens.That’s when we really started to become autonomous from one another.” Pre-teen, the girls were enamored with being grown-up, spending all their time with adults, especially their parents and grandparents.”We didn’t have babysitters very often, and my parents would bring us to functions. We were the most well-behaved, quiet kids because we wanted to play cards with my grandparents.We wanted to be included when they would have parties in the basement, with bands playing.They are not very public so not many people know about them. They've been together for over 6 years now and moved from NY to LA and live in a beautiful house with their 2 cats isn't this kind of shit perpetuating the stereo type of "so who is the man and who is the woman"?? The other tattoo is the horse from Hang on to the night and it's from an artwork of the same person who directed the video Saw this older video about a month ago, and I swear to God I just had a dream about Sara Quin doing the same thing in a music video to a Trump looking burglar but eventually morphed into a regular dude. She's just being honest about it now that she's not reliant on lesbians for money and support.
--are still every bit the outspoken activists they've been for most of their 13-year career.
The band has released six studio albums in more than a decade. The band has a new lighting director, giving the show what Tegan calls ”a more theatrical feel to it,” and will play selections from its past few albums.
In recent years Tegan & Sara has garnered more attention through work with Death Cab for Cutie, dance music giant Tiesto, and Cyndi Lauper. As per custom, the twins will amusingly banter and humorously bicker onstage. “It’s compulsive at this point.” Though they share ”a very intense bond,” the twins weren’t inseparable growing up in Calgary, just as they aren’t inseparable now.

Omg I could so see her doing a video like that for real! Saw this older video about a month ago, and I swear to God I just had a dream about Sara Quin doing the same thing in a music video to a Trump looking burglar but eventually morphed into a regular dude. Just because you identify as a ciswoman it doesn’t mean everyone does.
