TEEN RAVINE‘s new song, “EVERYONE,” is an escapist fantasy which explores the desire to withdraw from an overstimulated world. It’s about wanting to do nothing and shut it all down. If less is more, then none is most.
“EVERYONE“ was recorded as part of a live show at Array Music in Toronto last August. With the help of saxophonist and string arranger, Edwin Sheard, the duo adapted their repertoire to be performed alongside a chamber quintet (violin, viola, cello, flute and alto sax). They wanted to capture the vulnerable immediacy of performing live in front of an attentive, intimate audience.
Given the current state of affairs, “EVERYONE” feels prescient in an unanticipated way. TEEN RAVINE hope that it makes you feel sad and hopeful in equal measure.
