Tegan and Sara Talk with Dehd on the Talkhouse Podcast

The twins chat with their new fave band about intense intra-band relationships, "success," and their deep need for pets.

It turns out that Tegan and Sara, Talkhouse Podcast producer extraordinaire Mark, and lil ol’ me all share a favorite new band: Dehd. Hailing from Chicago, the jangle-tastic indie-rocking three-piece recently released their second LP Flower of Devotion, a tour de fookin’ force of boy/girl vocals, Sarah Records-worthy guitar, and lyrics that make you wonder if the tears in your eyes are from loneliness or laughter.

When we saw Sara tweeting her, um, devotion to the band, we knew a Talkhouse convo was in order! Keep it locked to hear about the vicissitudes of intense intra-band relationships; how musical joy isn’t necessarily part and parcel of “success”; and pets as surrogate babies, tourmates, and social media fodder.
