After garnering over fifteen million streams since last summer with their bitbird debut EP ‘Lights,’ Berlin-based duo, TWO LANES, continue their creative journey on the label with the release of their new single “Phases.”
Creating indie-electronic music—floating somewhere between melodic techno and deep house—TWO LANES are defined by a distinctive sound that can be recognized from a song’s very first note. The analog texture, acoustic instruments, and atmospheric productions used in their art leave a unique stamp on all things TWO LANES.
With Leo having a background in classical music and Rafa in electronic, the brothers are always collaborating and experimenting by blending organic elements with electronic sounds. TWO LANES explain “Phases” was created in a similar way of exploration:
“We recently got a Juno 60 for our studio here in Berlin. We have always wanted one and were really excited when it finally arrived. Most of the sounds you can hear in ‘Phases’ come from this legendary synth. We really enjoy the soundscape of that instrument – it’s very warm and wide and always pleasing. ‘Phases’ is a sonic result of those first days when we were exploring the Juno 60.”
On this release, TWO LANES have leveled up their creativity by transcending their own ‘Lights’ EP with the new ethereal and introspective single which is “Phases.” Sounds are carefully layered one by one, and seamlessly disappear again in the flowy four-minute track; the perfect complement to their previous release. The song cycles through building up and breaking down as if it’s a soundtrack to the phases of the moon. It’s one to easily leave on repeat.
“Phases is the first release of the new year. We have so many ideas for new music and it feels great to start releasing what we’ve been creating over the last months.” – TWO LANES
