Tegan and Sara Come to Boise

Tuesday, Sept. 25, at Knitting Factory Concert House



Identical twins Tegan and Sara Quin broke into the indie spotlight in the early aughts, sporting spiky haircuts and dueling acoustic guitars. But after more than a decade, there is still much to be learned about this duo in transit.

Hailing from Calgary, Canada, the band's previous album, Sainthood, has been on the shelves since 2009, garnering the sisters mainstream success and an ever-growing flurry of fans. The record was dark, catchy and much heavier than 2007's The Con or 2004's So Jealous.

With a United Kingdom tour with dance pop legends The Killers slated for later this year, Tegan and Sara is gearing up to release its seventh full-length in 2013. Videos of an elusive new song entitled "Closer" have been popping up on the Web, and if this '80s-inspired pop gem is an indication of the direction Tegan and Sara are taking, there is certainly a bright future ahead.
