New Moose Track Spotlight: Tegan + Sara – ‘Closer’
Tegan Quin and Sara Quin were born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in 1980 and began playing guitar and writing songs at age 15. Following the release of their first independent full-length album, ‘Under Feet Like Ours,’ back in 1999, they caught the attention of Neil Young’s manager, Elliot Roberts. He signed them to his Los Angeles based label, Vapor Records.
Tegan and Sara’s first international release, ‘This Business Of Art,’ was followed by extensive worldwide touring, including opening slots with Neil Young himself and a first appearance on ‘The Late Show with David Letterman.’
According to their official website the sisters “enjoy reading, hair, ships, vampires, hot dogs, talking and relating to elderly people, self-soothing, rearranging furniture, and giving excellent advice.”
Tegan and Sara’s 7th studio album, ‘Heartthrob,’ featuring their first hit single, ‘Closer,’ debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 chart, securing the band’s highest US chart position to date.
