Tegan And Sara: A Closer Look At 'Closer'The Current

Canadian twin-sister duo Tegan and Sara are one of alternative pop's most celebrated acts, having released seven full-length albums over nearly two decades as musical collaborators. They've also been longtime Current favorites, stopping by for an in-studio performance in 2007 and an intimate performance in the UBS forum in 2010.

Their latest full-length, Heartthrob, was released in January, and finds the siblings expanding their palette of influences and incorporating a clean, bright production sound, as demonstrated on the lush electro-pop of lead single "Closer," which recently received pop's greatest honor — inclusion on the wildly popular TV show Glee. The 32-year-old sisters continue to grow and mature as lyricists, and their ever-growing popularity has landed them impressive gigs. Watch for them at this spring's Coachella Festival.
