Electronic duo TWO LANES just unveiled what could be deemed as their most emotional and introspective single release to date titled “Belong.” Echo doused piano chords lay the melancholy framework which lends the track a certain type of grit and rawness. Soft percussion elements build the rhythm section as the ethereal vocals mystically reveal the song’s verses. The dexterous production is topped off with elegant strings, atmospheric effects, and slurred aesthetics.
The Berlin based brothers both come from very strong yet distinct musical backgrounds. From this space, the brothers decided to team up and from here the TWO LANES project was born. Amassing millions of streams, the duo has attracted radio support from the likes of BBC1, Sirius XM, Triple J and now amassed over 150 million plays across all streaming platforms. With their evocative and expansive sound, TWO LANES is positioned to be a fixture in electronic music for years to come. Catch TWO LANES on their upcoming North American tour September 8 through October 18th.
Listen to “Belong” below.
“With our new track‚ “Belong” we wanted to combine acoustic instruments such as the piano and strings with synthesizers and electronic beat elements. We wrote the vocals with our dear friend James Hersey at our studio here in Berlin. Lyrically the song reflects on the urge to find the right place in life where one belongs. We recorded the strings with a string player at Funkhaus Berlin. During the session we experimented with different instruments, microphones and bowing techniques to achieve a variety of sounds and a unique tone.” — TWO LANES
