Tegan & Sara: The gay interview


In last week’s Music Issue, we had a review of the hot new CD from gay musical twins Tegan and Sara. Now, our Chris Azzopardi sat down with the sister act for this one-on-one … or, one-on-two.

Sister Act

They’ve been on the verge of straight-up pop music for years, but Tegan and Sara are going all in with Heartthrob. Don’t think they’re all happy and stuff, though.

“It’s our most heartbreaking record,” says Tegan Quin. “It’s a great record for people who loved our past music. It’s just that they have to get past the sound.”

The sound she’s referring to was captured in all its heavenly bliss when their seventh album’s first single, “Closer,” instantly aligned itself with some of the best pop songs of the mid ’90s. We revisited that defining era in music — and even before then, when the girls were hanging New Kids on the Block posters in their bedroom — during our interview with the Quin sisters.
