Teen Ravine’s Nick Rose and Dan Griffin want to get close but not too close; a sentiment that may well be the hallmark of a generation’s struggle with the desire for, and fear of, intimacy. It’s fitting that the band’s debut self-titled album was conceived during periods of isolation; Rose having recently parted ways with a long term girlfriend and Griffin having suffered a concussion that confined him to a dark room for a year. The two began collaborating from their apartment studios in Toronto as both an exercise in recovery and an exploration of physical and emotional alienation. As a result, the album has the obsessive intimacy of a bedroom recording while aspiring to the west-coast pop/R&B of the late 70s and early 80s.
