Chain of Influences: Tegan and Sara

I love Tegan and Sara. They just released a new song, Closer. I thought it’d be interesting to follow a chain of influences, starting with Tegan and Sara. A chain of influences as I think of it is basically this: Band A is influenced by Band B, who is influenced by Band C, et c.–it’s a fun way of diving into the musical past. Enjoy!

Tegan and Sara are influenced by the Police.

The Police were reputedly influenced by the Clash:
