Tegan and Sara Explain Their Evolution

(Radio.com) It might be hard to believe but Tegan and Sara have been making music for close to 20 years. The sisters began their musical evolution in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in 1995.

"This record, Heartthrob, is our most pop sounding record," Tegan told Fresh 102.7/New York during the duo's performance at City Winery. "But I think that we've been on a musical evolution since we started back in the '90s."

The gradual transition in their music writing style has been natural to the sisters and supported by fans, from the guitar dominated This Business of Art to their popular fifth studio release The Con. Despite the eclectic sound they have produced over the years, which Tegan describes as not having a "place in a record store," there has been one common characteristic binding their catalog.

"I think that most importantly we are songwriters," say Tegan, who admits she wanted Heartthrob to be more of a "Tegan and Sara record," as opposed to one that sounds split by the two very different perspectives of the twin sisters. "This record is definitely pop leaning but it's still Tegan and Sara songs. There's still a lot of heartbreak, a lot of longing, a lot of sadness and there's actually some romance . For the first time we're not totally unhappy trolls!" more on this story
