Teen Ravine is a duo out of Toronto, and their latest single “Steady On” is a song that might just be the trick if you’re feeling some sort of stress or anxiety in your life. The track is due off of their upcoming LP set to release in the fall.
Their album began as an exploration of physical and emotional alienation; one member was overcoming a separation of a long term relationship, while the other was subjected to a year in a dark room, recovering from a concussion.
The two mentioned about the song, “There’s a bridge over the Don River in Toronto and written above it is the phrase: “This river I step in is not the river I stand in”. You could drive over it a thousand times and miss it. But it’s a really beautiful thing…a subtle reminder that no matter how hard we try to resist it, nothing is permanent, everything is in flux.”
After time passed recording in their studio apartments in Toronto, the result ended up in “Steady On.” The song does a great job of portraying raw emotion through vocals and even the instruments themselves. It’s relaxed, mellow and is just the trick if you need something to help wind you down from the stressors that could be present in your life. The song caps off with an irresistible guitar break down. The duo has been featured on DIY, Noisey, and The Line of Best Fit. Listen to “Steady On” in full below.
