Last month we were introduced to Roller Derby, a rising trio from Germany who cast a spell with their debut song “I Wish” that instantly won over our hearts. That was just the start, as today they have returned with its follow-up, “Flying High.”

It’s another winner, sounding like a combination between Molly Burch and Angel Olsen, with an old-fashioned vocal performance from Philine Meyer (also on the keys) that sounds like it’s from a different era. But the instrumentation from Manuel Romero Soria (guitar) and Max Nielsen (bass) sprinkles in modern flourishes and dreamy arrangements that all combine to an enchanting effect.

Find “Flying High” available to stream below and stay tuned for the music video, which is coming soon.
