The incredibly attractive pair have been in model heaven as they do the rounds for Australian Fashion Week.
Fans can usually tell the 35-year-old Canadian identical twins apart: Sara has a heart-shaped face, and Tegan has a little scar from her old labret piercing.2016 marks not just the release of Tegan and Sara’s eighth album, Love You to Death, but their 20th year as a band.By some metrics, their sound has evolved immensely, but by others it’s been remarkably resilient.If it’s anyone, Hillary Clinton is “that girl” right now. We actually met President Bill Clinton couple years ago in Toronto — we did an event for him. I don't feel as freaked out or as anxious as I've felt on other albums cycles or in other parts of my life.When he walked up, he shook our hands, gave us hugs, and then he was like, "I'm so excited to meet you guys, my wife and I love Grey's Anatomy, and ‘Where Does the Good Go’ is our favorite song." After that, he thanked us for all the work we done in the LGBT community. Like, I was like, “I don't want to go on in-ear monitors, I just want to sing on monitors.” Nobody said no to me. When you're younger, things sort of live in this nebulous place where you haven't yet experienced it.In one of these most recent interviews Tegan and/or Sara talk about how they're confident that writing while happy and in healthy relationships can still produce great songs.That got me to wondering what frame of mind they were each in while writing the prior records.Can someone who is familiar with this fill me in on each record and if Tegan and Sara were either in a relationship or heartbroken while writing for that record.I'd like to compare and contrast the records/songs I favor the most with if they were heartbreak records or happy time records. I guess a timeline of their dating history would also work.There's something to be said for the experience, and something to be said for the Clintons themselves. We've always picked whoever's the Democratic candidate. We're watching with deep fascination, and anticipation. Like, you have never been broken up with or you haven't had someone die suddenly or you haven't had the shock of parent being diagnosed with a disease or you haven't done these things.SARA: Some of the things we're making, it seemed to me anyways, that Tegan was a bit disappointed with the trajectory after The Con. We didn't see a tremendous amount of growth in terms of our careers, and Tegan has started to sort of see us being held back somehow. She wanted to be on the same level as some of her friends who were in bands that were bigger than us, and she was like, “Why can't we have a bigger goals, and why can't we be more ambitious? And it was very difficult to express it to Sara, and especially to our managers, that I was disappointed. Like I remember the show we had The Talk, it was in London and we were playing in front of thousands of people. Tegan and I have had 17 years of adult experience where we have had to live through amazing highs and incredible lows.
