Twins in Bands

No you're not seeing double, these 6 bands have twins in them

It’s not uncommon for family members that are musically inclined to start a band. The Jackson Five, Haim, The Rankin Family… the list is endless. But since only 2% of the world’s population are twins, and only 0.2% are identical twins, I was surprised to find so many in bands that we listen to today. Let’s start with the obvious…

Tegan Rain Quin and Sara Keirsten Quin – are not only twins but they’re identical.


The Breeders – Kim Deal and her sister Kelley are identical twins too.


The Proclaimers – the Scottish band is composed of identical twin brothers Charlie and Craig Reid.


Cayucas – Zach Yudin and Ben Yudin are twin brothers.


The National – Aaron and Bryce Dessner are twins.


Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah – brothers Lee Sargeant and Tyler Sargeant twins.
