Tegan quin dating lindsey byrnes
At the end of the day, I want to be in a band that writes great songs, and I want to have as many fans as we can possibly find.
We love to perform, and I’m a political person, so I love the fact that we have a voice and have a message, and that we’re promoting good and doing inspiring things.
Well it’s really tough to answer that because yes, I do, and probably in a magnified way because I’m me. I always use the example that, for some people, the fact that we’re twins…you know, we look the same and they’re like, “Oh my god, I can’t tell you apart.” And I think that’s so absurd because I look at Tegan and I don’t see myself at all. In the same way, when I hear music of Tegan’s, I don’t think to myself “Wow, that’s so similar.
Like I hear only the finest differences.” So it makes it hard because I think we sound completely different.
I try to think about the records I bought in the last year…it’s so varied.I listen to a lot of old country and I listen to a lot of old hipster electronic music, and also a lot of really lo-fi shit. I envy and admire those who are able to write and produce those massive hits. I can really admire a big public machine like Justin Bieber. You know, my parents loved Zeppelin and Springsteen and U2 and The Pretenders and The Police and all that kind of stuff. Anything that had a good strong melody, we loved it. I can be the biggest snob, but when it gets down to it, I can get into a Tom Petty record. In a sense, I almost don’t believe in guilty pleasures. Are you someone who mostly buys records or CDs, or do you go for digital music?That record is just chock full of melodies and hooks and whatever. I definitely do digital music, but I’m definitely still an old-fashioned person in the sense that I buy a ridiculous amount of books and magazines.And yeah, I realize that our natural genetics and whatever make us sound similar. After a couple of years, you think that your perspectives on things would change a tremendous amount, and yet they probably don’t.You guys have talked a lot in the past about how, as songwriters, you have a sense of morality about yourselves and that you should be promoting a certain message with your music. Our approach to our band and our lives have remained pretty similar.
