Two Lanes - Berlin-based siblings Leo and Rafa Schmid - recently released their ‘Reflections EP’ on San Holo’s bitbird imprint. The EP kicks off with the track ‘Phases,’ a melodic instrumental piece that sets the vibe for the rest of the work. The next single, ‘Reflections’ is a soothing production for those early Sunday morning vibes or late-night summer sessions.
‘Another Time (ft. Kwesi)’ is a piano-driven track with sombre undertones, yet its melody stands out on the project, as it's one of only two tracks with vocals. ‘Remembering the Future’ follows with a soft melody, aiming to bring peace and calmness to any listener.
‘Rolling Back’ is next which leads into ‘Transcend’ - an aptly named track for easy listening. The EP is rounded out by the closing track ‘Epilogue,’ which is another piano-driven track, with a classical, yet modern feel about it.
Two Lanes: “We really got into a deeper level on the production for this EP. We brought this weird piano into the studio during the lockdown and had a lot of time to really work on sounds and integrate the piano more into the tracks. We used the time in lockdown to really develop the studio and work with modular gear and synthesisers which had a great impact on the music you’ll hear.
“We look at the new EP as an extension of the ‘Lights EP’ which came out last year on bitbird. it's about how a creative outcome can shape you emotionally, how you travel with your creative thoughts, and how this reflects on how you are as a person.”
