TWO LANES – Reflections (Spotify)

“Some super kind of melodic Deep House is out now. All the beauty of harmony hidden in a short track. Soothing, soul-touching, daydreaming composition with piano melodies. The glory of "Reflections" revealing directly from your speakers.”

TWO LANES - Berlin-based siblings Leo and Rafa Schmid - today announce the June 3 release of their forthcoming ‘Reflections EP’ on San Holo’s beloved bitbird imprint. Alongside the news of the full EP, TWO LANES are giving fans a taste of the new music with the release of the title track available to stream now.

The new single, ‘Reflections’ is a soothing masterpiece for those early Sunday morning vibes or late night summer sessions. It is a calming and reassuring track that adds more beauty and delicacy into this world. The instrumental and electronic melodies join to convey pure emotion and, of course, the piano heard throughout the song ties it all up for a relaxing feeling that stays long after the last note is played.

“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 synthesizers 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.”

With ‘Reflections EP,’ TWO LANES showcase their strong and unique production prowess that’s ever-evolving. Take a moment to enjoy ‘Reflections’ and prepare for the EP that will be here shortly!


Perfectly balancing live-instruments, analog synthesizers and electronic sounds, Berlin-based siblings TWO LANES started making indie-electronic music in 2018 as their outlet of an always evolving stream of ideas and their love for music. While Rafa has always been more into electronic music and music production, Leo was classically trained at The Juilliard School in New York City, which can be both heard and seen back in the live-versions they make of their songs, their music and the wide variety genres they produce. When graduating, the brothers decided to move to Berlin because of the city’s dynamic and young art scene.

The duo’s distinctive classically-influenced electronic music and their successful remixes including Odesza, RÜFÜS DU SOL, ZHU and Skrillex have resulted in great support from industry tastemakers such as Sirius XM Chill, Kasbo, Zeds Dead, YourEDM, Dancing Astronaut, DA, Trap Nation, and Mr. Suicide Sheep. TWO LANES released their latest EP ‘Lights’ in 2020 on bitbird, which was highly successful, garnering over 25 million streams and counting across platforms.
