Tegan and Sara

I'm not ashamed to admit it...

Tegan and Sara are one of my favorite musical acts. 

It's unbelievable to me how they've sustained both the same sound and dedicated fan base over the years - all while never actually migrating to mainstream radio.

The irony in that is they are so delightfully poppy. Every single one of their choruses is layered with just the right amount of bubblegum, which makes for the perfect catchiness for any music lover. 

When it comes to pop songwriters, there's almost nobody better right now.

Their new album, which came out today, is no exception. It's the same old amazing Tegan and Sara. 

Do yourself a favor and give them a listen if you haven't done so already. I get that they aren't for everybody, but I if you look past the poppiness and simplicity, hopefully you'll see how difficult what they're doing actually is.
