Hey TWIST readers,
TWIST recently hung out with Megan & Liz, an awesome band consisting of fraternal twins Megan and Liz Mace! The girls got their start singing cover songs and original songs on YouTube. Their YouTube channel has over 500,000 followers, and their videos have over 93 million views! They recently performed at the Z100 Jingle Ball Pre-Show in NYC! Check out our interview with Megan & Liz, and watch TWIST's exclusive performance of their song "Are You Happy Now?"
TWIST: Tell us about your sound and what kind of music you play! Liz: I would say our music is organic pop. We write really honest songs. We just write from our lives and our experiences.
TWIST: You guys just finished your tour with Action Item. How was that? Megan: The tour was insane! It was so much fun. It was very exhausting, but so worth it. All the Action Item guys are awesome, and all the other opening bands are awesome. It was just a great experience. Liz: We're kind of in a post-tour depression right now. We're really sad it's over because the last show was huge! It was so fun. I'm sad it's over.
TWIST: What's the best part about touring? Liz: I would say meeting our fans. This is the first tour we've really went out on that there's actually been fans, so it's just insane to play our songs and see people singing the words. That was insane.
TWIST: What's the worst part, then? Megan: The worst part is definitely the inconsistency with sleep. It goes back and forth; you'll get three hours and wake up, drive a little bit and go back to sleep for four hours, or you'll get eight hours straight. It's just so inconsistent, so that kind of stinks.
TWIST: What's your favorite original song of yours? Liz: My favorite original song is "Switched Hearts." We sang it on tour. I love it so much. It's probably the most personal one I think we've ever written.
TWIST: What's your favorite cover song to play? Megan: My favorite is "Stereo Hearts" [by Gym Class Heroes], just because it's so different and upbeat. The audience always knows it because it's such a big song.
TWIST: What are the advantages of being in a group as sisters? Megan: I would say one definite advantage is the honesty. We're always very honest with each other, and we're not afraid to say, "That looks bad. Don't wear that on stage," or "That sounded bad. Don't sing it that way."
TWIST: Do you get sick of each other? Megan: No. We get into occasional fights about things like makeup and clothes, but other than that, we're best friends. TWIST: What can our readers look forward to from you guys in the near future? Liz: Definitely new music, new covers, new videos and hopefully an album some time next year. Also, more live shows, and maybe even another tour. That would be awesome.
TWIST: Who would be the ultimate act for you guys to tour with? Megan and Liz in unison: Taylor Swift!
