Twin sisters Tegan and Sara Quin have dominated the indie music scene since 1999 with their debut album "Under Feet Like Ours." The duo made it no secret that they wanted to explore a more pop-oriented sound with this year's "Heartthrob" album.
"Closer" was released first released in September of last year. The synthpop track served as the lead single from the duo's “Heartthrob” album, their most mainstream effort yet. Tegan and Sara wanted to take an unexpected direction with their music so they wrote this fun dance song with hitmaker Greg Kurstin. The two sisters playfully come onto the person of eye when they sing, "All I dream of lately is how to get you underneath me."
"Closer" recently bubbled under the all-genre Hot 100 music chart for a number of weeks before finally debuting this week. It marks Tegan and Sara's first ever appearance on the chart, coming in at no. 90. The single currently sits within the top 200 on iTunes and its party-themed music video has been viewed over 8 million times. Tegan and Sara seem poised to keep climbing up the Hot 100 with "Closer."
Tegan and Sara's "Heartthrob" album was released in January and it peaked at no. 2 on Billboard's albums chart.
