Expect a lot of Tegan and Sara in the coming months — not only do Canada's favourite twins have a TV adaptation of their High School memoir on the way, they also have this new biography.
Modern Heartthrobs was written by journalist Melody Lau and is arriving via Invisible Publishing. The publisher's site describes the biography as exploring "the multifaceted career of one of music's most celebrated sister duos, from their start as Neil Young's protégés to Canadian indie-rock purveyors and, making their riskiest transformation yet, into mainstream pop breakouts."
Andrea Warner — author of Buffy Sainte-Marie: The Authorized Biography and We Oughta Know: How Four Women Ruled the '90s and Changed Canadian Music — said of Modern Heartthrobs:
Lau's writing is sharp, insightful, witty, and heartfelt, and brings us a richer and deeper understanding of the Quin sisters' relationship to each other, their art, and the systemic barriers and obstacles they've navigated throughout 20+ years in music. This essential book is for everyone who loves great writing, excellent music, and subverting the patriarchy.
