Pigeonholed early on for quirks of genetics and identity, this Canadian duo has proved expert at delivering something any demographic can sink its teeth into: spiky, emotive, Cars-y guitar pop. "Walking with a Ghost" was a bona fide hit last year. In the way of hits these days, it found the American ear through TV and soundtrack spots rather than traditional radio. Their latest album, The Con, produced with Death Cabber Chris Walla, explores the varieties of modern heartbreak—another universal. Live, expect plenty of sisterly cattiness, revved-up arrangements, and two voices that can charm and cut glass from one line to the next. All ages.
