One half of the Canadian sister-duo Tegan and Sara, Tegan Quin called into Fresh 102.7 to talk with Kim & Cane about life post ‘Closer’ success and their upcoming performance at Fresh 102.7’s own Fresh In The Park.

Dealing with the potential backlash from fans over their mainstream success who want to “keep” the girls for themselves Tegan says, “When ‘Closer’ came out as a single there was, of course, people that were like ‘Oh no is the whole record just gonna be this big pop anthem thing and Tegan and Sara are gonna be a completely different band.’ And once the fans could hear it and hear how the whole record is heartfelt, raw, vulnerable; I think its our best-written record. It’s the same old Tegan and Sara just dressed up a little bit.”

She continues, “It’s important for an artist to explore and experiment… We’re still alternative enough that I don’t know we’ll ever be a Katy Perry.”

But don’t think the girls have become too big for their fans. “I really love talking to our fans still, I still love that connection we still have.”

And don’t expect the sisters to wear a t-shirt and shorts on stage at Fresh In The Park. Dedicated to keeping up their rock star image even in the sweltering summer heat, Tegan tells us they’d rather deal with the 45 minute discomfort of leather jackets on stage rather than deal with a lifetime of tank-topped Internet pics.
