Fish And Scale aka Roland Wälzlein is a German singer-songwriter and a folk artist. Known for his epiphany-inducing stream of conscious narratives, listening to the artist’s work is a way of discovering the self. Inspired by autobiographical accounts, Roland brings the emotion to the melody and the lesson to the verses. In his latest single, Stay, Fish And Scale captures the feeling of being alive with his intricate web of acoustics. Listeners of Bon Iver, the Books, and Four Tet are sure to enjoy the work of this artist! 

The track opens with the glinting sound of golden guitar melodies. As the ruminative piano embellishes the stringy texture, the wise baritones of the artist curve and spread across the soundscape. And with thumping beats and brighter instrumentation, the tempo drives up to a blooming finality. 

Roland’s reflections explore the timeless and reiterated themes of existentialism and the human condition. The listener can’t help but appreciate the simplicity with which the artist delivers his findings. His observations are always elating and his stories, always liberating. Fish And Scale debuted in 2012 with his debut album, Straight Ahead and has since released two singles and another album, making this track his fifth official release. 

The track is available for streaming on popular sites like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
