Tegan and Sara – Love You to Death

tegan and sara love you to deathThe Canadian twin sisters have been working in the music business for almost twenty years and obviously learned plenty. Plenty about different styles of music. So much so that they have been toying with different genres for just about as long as they have been around. The began as a cooler than your average bear folk duo and now have transitioned into a successful indie pop act. The search continues on Love You to Death as they are moving into full on dance music. To help them create that big splashy sound they have engaged Greg Kurstin (Adele, Ellie Goulding, Pink), a man who knows how to create sounds to get young people on the dance floor. The result is a fun sound that has a slightly “I’ve heard that before” sound to it. There are little bits of old Madonna, New Order and loads of other Eighties bands.What differentiates them from desperate sounding bandwagon hoppers is the intricacy of their lyrics. They have always known how to string words together. Each song is a little ball of them working through an issue or emotion or heartbreak in a cathartic way. Take your time with this album. Don’t just listen to the sound of it all but the entire package. Give it a chance; this is more than cookie-cutter pop.
