Tegan And Sara Share “Fade Out” From Indie Film ‘The Intervention’
The cinematic song was originally meant for the Quin sisters’ recent album.
Tegan and Sara won’t let up on the magical synth-pop rollout campaign. They’ve released a number of new projects from their recent LP, Love You to Death, but the Quin sisters have a finger in every pot. They shared two-minutes of a new song titled “Fade Out,” the main soundtrack song for indie film The Intervention.
The track was originally meant for their record, but after a few discussions with the film’s director, felt it was too cinematic.
“I played a rough idea of it for Clea [DuVall, filmmaker, actress] and she really liked it,” she tells Rolling Stone. “So I tried to imagine Melanie Lynskey’s character and the misguided attempt to fix other people’s lives when she herself was headed for a fadeout in her own relationship and rewrote the lyrics.” The sisters cut it in a quick session they had to end early because Tegan had a severe allergic reaction and needed to go to an urgent-care clinic. “We were hoping we’d recorded enough for the engineer to work with,” Sara says.
She added: “I love the duality of the dreamy melody with the somewhat bittersweet lyrics. When Sara first played me the finished song, all of my anxiety disappeared. The more I hear it, the more I fall in love with it.”
