The duo of Berlin-based siblings Leo and Rafa Schmid, Two Lanes latest single is the gorgeous, hypnotic, piano-drenched, lo-fi electronic burner 'Rolling Back'.

It features Australian electronic artist Panama on vocals, which are akin to a soothing balm, and will be included on Two Lanes' forthcoming EP 'Reflections' (due 18 June).

"We have been huge fans of Panama's music since we first listened to his 'Always' EP, so we are very excited to finally share this collaboration," Two Lanes says.

Fans of Hayden James, Flume, Washed Out, Rufus Dul Sol and Moglii will immediately find 'Rolling Back' attractive to the ears. "It all started with a piano progression that we recorded in our studio in Berlin," Two Lanes explains.

"We added some atmospheric pad sounds and recorded some percussion loops with our modular system.

"We like how the texture of these modular bell and pluck sounds blend in with the piano. We sent this sketch to Jarrah aka Panama and he added some sounds to the production and started to write the vocals for 'Rolling Back'.

"When he sent back the first version we both absolutely loved it! There is something very ethereal about the way he uses his voice and his overall writing style which is very inspiring and works really well with our musical vision."

About 'Rolling Back', Panama says: "It's about being magnetised to the past without any control over it. At the time I was battling with staying in a present kind of state, I kept moving out of the present and into the past.

"Some songs have a definite thing to say, others are more abstract. I think this one is more abstract, it can mean more than one thing."

Two Lanes have teamed with Australian director Matthew Thorne to create a music video for 'Rolling Back'. "We have been huge fans of Matthew's work so we decided to reach out and see if he would like to make a music video for 'Rolling Back'.

"When we found out that he lives in Berlin as well we went over to his place and had a nice talk about music, films, and art.

"Collaborating with someone is all about trusting that they will take something that you have made and put it into their creative perspective. We love the way it turned out and are excited to share it with the world."

Two Lanes' 'Reflections' EP is released 18 June.
