Having first fallen in love with Hamburg-based indie trio Roller Derby when they supported Lunar Vacation live at Moth Club earlier this year, I was super happy to hear they had a new single out last month. The first single to be released by their new label Practise Music (also home to faves like deep tan and Fraulein), ‘Only You’ offers all the dreamily retro vibes you could ever desire.
Oozing an immersive blissful allure, ‘Only You‘ flows with twinkling, lilting hooks and the honey-sweet vocals of Philine Meyer as it builds with a shimmering, uplifting grace to an exquisite, emotion-strewn anthem. With subtle, Twin Peaks-esque eerie undertones, it’s propelled by a vibrant ’60s surf-pop energy and glistening heartfelt splendour, creating a truly euphoric soundscape.
