"Us as I said t Quinn Answer Quinn. Their new memoir titled High School in their latest album. I'm just like so you tell me Sarah you guys write that everything is awesome. It's a huge hit. It's part of the lego movie. Andy Sandberg's group. It does sort of a little live fun. Little wrapping insert in the middle of. Does this feel like a Larkin. Just like kind of fun pranked plank to do in some ways or this feel like corporate gig. It's good exposure. What the hell? Let's do it. Well first let me say we did. Not Right I wish we had because we'd be retired living on like a Caribbean island right right now but It was written by another Joe who are fabulous song writers and we were asked to sing it so if we were in. I believe we were in Prague. We were somewhere on tour in Europe up and we hold. It was very cold. We were in like a dark basement in a little was awesome. Very very little was awesome and we were we. We were checking through our emails like we normally do our managers They they propose this the situation of would you be able to throw dumb vocals down over top of this song. It's going to be a movie movie and we think it would be cool. The lonely islander involved we know Andy Sandberg so we were very excited and And I have to be honest. It really came together in this sort of In in this way that it you know dreams are made of where you don't have to do much you've put some vocals on something and Teagan whitten recorded in Los Angeles and I did some of the vocals at home Where I was living in New York but We really had no idea what was going to happen. We we sort of like we. We did the little bit of work we need to do. And then a few months later when the movie came out we were we were absolutely caught off guard by how massive the song became an the opportunities that came because of the song becoming such a huge international hit and doing things like You know the the Kademi awards just to to imagine ourselves back in that little basement singing everything is awesome into our computers. I mean it was just it was it was I one hundred opportunities that you really don't end up with one like this one very often. I mean so basically at the time you're like fine. It's the equivalent of singing a couple songs. That family family members friends Bar mitzvahs. We can do this okay. And it's huge. It blows up. We clearly have no clue we. We must not know what hit song is. I mean this is why we've always sort of like you. You just. It's a shot in the dark. It's a shot. While you gotTa keep going for another twenty years have no idea. Let's take a couple of calls a lot of your listeners. An and our listeners are calling in we got one from peyton eaten Calling in from Boston. Thanks for listening to show Thanks for listening to teagan. And Sara what are your questions for them guys My question is do did you. Did you guys feel any kind of fear or worry or nervousness about putting out a book about a time in your life when you guys were so extremely the long mobile. That's a great question and yes. We were definitely. Sarah and I both spent a lot of time while we were writing making sure that we were telling our story and not necessarily telling other people stories because a lot of the people that we wrote about in the book are still very close to us and still really involved in our life and you know I think we were really focused on making sure that we weren't exposing anyone any detail that didn't need to be there. That might hurt anyone. Anyone we tried to take all of that out Mostly though to be honest we were driven by this desire to write something to share a story. That doesn't often get told you you know we acknowledge that you know that as queer women especially as as as creatives and musicians. That often are stories. Aren't told and you know the opportunity to get to do that. Felt really really important. There was a ton of purpose behind writing the book. It wasn't just a let's collect a paycheck can tell us salacious story in you know reach more people like it was it. It was not quite so gross. It was kind of like that but then also mostly just about wanting to I hope give hope until our redemption story be honest. I think people are often and put into the media when you become popular. Your public figure is perfect. I came out. Everything's great. Look how great my life is look how accepted and loved by society. I am and you know some. Yeah that's true but the reality is up for a lot of People in our community It doesn't doesn't feel like that and Sarah and I wanted to talk a little more about our life before we became name public figures and before things got easier and We just really felt like there was a lot of Purpose in doing that but we definitely spaced out a lot over like should we tell is this is going to bug people. Shocking people were mostly just really stressed out in our life about us talking about doing drugs as young people and that that didn't stress us out that made us wish we'd written more about drugs but that's for the next. I suppose you guys did not exactly stint about writing for about drugs. I mean I gotta say that I was like wow i. It's clearly not Into that particular vein of high school because You know it was like no no worth a safe place with the rave where and forgive me parents out there but but you guys were like no. We're going to drop kids care about us is going to do violence to us later. You look back at that and say boy. We're putting ourselves in Perla circumstances and you you say hey it all led to this. We're playing in front of the Academy Awards. We don't do this now but you know it's all part of the process to get here. I think that it's important for us. We grew up in a time where we a lot of unsupervised unsupervised time. Our parents were very busy. Our mother went back and got a bachelor's degree in a match a master's degree while we were in school and in in during our adolescent so she was working and going to school There was a responsibility that we were going to be able to get ourselves to and from school and feed ourselves and I look at the way kids are being raised now and I can see how this story would seem particularly shocking. We didn't feel we were being like neglected. We weren't like You know running the streets or whatever we were we. We still had a lot of structure but there was an experimental side to us. And you know I say this a lot. I think psychedelic drugs. Do get very specific nick reputation especially when we're talking about girls you know. I have lots of musician. Friends who are extr- mail and extremely open about their experimentation and opening their minds probably the band everyone especially men love to talk about are the Beatles and their how they revolutionized music and they did all of these things and I you know I want to be very clear. I'm not advocating for for teenagers to be taking drugs. I understand how impressionable and how their brains are developing all of these things. I cannot lie and deny that that that drugs has had an impact on me Antiguan and they they allowed us to be creative and collaborative and fun and in some ways. I know this sounds like it can't possibly be true but because because of the type of drugs we were doing in the type of community we were drawn to. I felt we were safe. Because we were with people like us. We were at Raves. That were so openly You know welcoming to queer people into women so many of the places that we were would that we would have been normal for us to go to the mall. I mean we used to go to the mall in like people would threaten to beat us up. And there was like people prostituting and there was violence and there was shoplifting in there was I don't know people trying to boot for getting beer or whatever and we were just like hanging hanging out on a coach listening to electric music. I don't know it didn't feel that dangerous to me against the one difference with the Beatles and I think that was Sarah when difference in the Beatles heels. They sort of came to it later as they were. Why but the that is true and I do agree with that but I also think that you know? I don't think that's why we let guys off the hook. There's a whole generation generation of young people who have created you know fabulous Genre changing music. who were probably doing drugs or drinking or experimenting At different times in their lives whether it was younger it was old. I don't disagree that it's terrifying to think of a fifteen year old taking acid. I understand that I really really do. I just think that it's like I also think that there. You WanNa be honest and true to your own expert you and you know what I also think is so interesting is that I was so prepared for adults to be adults in our life and turn lists and people to be shocked by drinking because when I look back at our youth in the nights that were terrifying to me nights where there were grit. We're there with a great risks taken around alcohol the experience that is totally true getting in cards and drinking too much. And you guys describe one point falling down the stairs or something. It's broke my arm drinking but you know when you look at what's happening like even just in the United States around you know College and and Binge Drinking and sexual assaults and you know alcohol is it's A. It's a drug. It's it's it's an. It's a substance that I think is really really terrifying and I I don't deny that. LSD can be scary. But like Geez when I was looking back at our adolescence when I think about LSD. I'm sort of like we were just pinned to the couch. Having these like psychedelic experiences it was really alcohol. That scared me when I went back and looked at that time. Let's take a couple of calls. Now Dayton Ohio Sean Thanks for listening to this show. Tell us Your thoughts about Teagan and Sara Itn.
