Canadian folk-punk duo Tegan and Sara recently stopped by the Interface studio to play four stunning acoustic tunes from their new album, 'The Con.' Between the songs and a bevy of banter, the two managed to get a word or two in about Bruce Springsteen.
"[Bruce] was definitely one of the main influences for us," Sara told Spinner. The twins have even payed homage to the rock veteran by covering 'Dancing in the Dark' -- from 1984's 'Born in the U.S.A.' -- in previous live shows. "I really love the version that we did," Sara said of the song. "It's sad, sort of sparse -- almost a sweet version. Kids would come up and be like, 'Who sings that song? And I'd be like, 'Bruce Springsteen. You know, with the Courtney Cox video.' They're like, 'I had no idea.'"
Hear the rest of Tegan and Sara's witty verbosity -- including stories of how Neil Young is an unoffical official third member, bowling with Meg White and the making of 'The Con' -- and download their full Interface performance, by clicking below.
