Tegan and Sara

“”Build a wall of books between us in our bed
Repeat, repeat the words that I know we both said
Relax into the need
We get so comfortable
Remember when I was so strange and likeable
I just want back in your head
I just want back in your head
I'm not unfaithful
But I'll stray””
I was casually listening to Pandora one day when my ears perked up when I heard the song “”Back In Your Head”” by Tegan and Sara. They are a Canadian indie pop/indie rock band. I liked it so much that I immediately found it on YouTube so that I could listen to it again. It surprised me that the image of the thin, pale, scrawny twins with short black hair on the screen were the faces behind the music. I suppose that I shouldn't had been surprised that the sound could come from a unique bunch like those two. I immediately developed a “”girl crush””on the two short little rockers with tattoos covering their translucently white arms. They are so –I hate to use this word but–cute, yet edgy and intriguing at the same time. Something about their image just works, simply put. They're cute without seeming to try. It's refreshing that they're not trying to fit a mold. They're almost like misfits, but they seem to make it work in a laid-back, non-aggressive way. And although the hipster look isn't exactly my style, it suits them well and I dig it. Although their image is a positive addition to their music, it was their songwriting skills and beats that stood out to me in the first place.
Apparently I'm not the only one who has taken a liking to their music; they are one of the four bands in the Honda Civic Tour, traveling with well-known bands like Paramore and New Found Glory. If you're interested and would like to learn more about these artists, check out their website and listen to some of their songs (especially “”Back in Your Head”” and “”Feel It In My Bones””). These young 30-year-olds are very talented, and I plan on following their music career and maybe one day even catch one of their performances. Watch out, they are going to blow up overnight, you just wait.
