Tegan Quin, who comprises half of the twin-sister duo, told the story of this Hearthrob
track to Under The Radar
: "It was originally written even before we started working on this record, for a soundtrack. So originally, I'd been writing it with a different objective. They'd requested a love song, and I was like, 'How the f--k do you write a love song?'
So I listened to, like, 40 different love songs, and every single one of them
was the same! It was all like, 'love is blind!' and 'love can heal all wounds!' So I started writing down all of the different messages from each love song, and those ended up making up the lyrics to the song. So, love is blind
. Love heals all wounds
. Love makes us stronger
. I was sort of making fun of love, but in the end I was thinking, 'Oh my god! That's really how we feel about love!'"
