I’ve been a Tegan and Sara fan from way back, pretty much as far back as you can go without being from Calgary. I still remember having to order their first CD from an actual CD store, because that’s the way we rolled back then.
2013’s “Hearththrob” represents a new musical chapter for the band. It’s still Tegan and Sara, but not like you’ve heard them before. They’re at the top of their song-writing game, but the production on these songs is more lush, a little less garage-y, and just plain fun to listen to. It’s a new artistic turn for the band and the results are fantastic.
Go ahead and get this album. You can thank me later.
