Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Fish And Scale. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked the mood of his music.
From the very first notes, I liked the atmosphere created by the songs of this talented artist.
A voice that carries with it real-life, experiences, adventures.
An intense vocal timbre that hides a very fascinating melancholy.
I believed the words sung in his songs because his vocal interpretation goes straight to the heart.
The hoarse voice manages to make this unstable balance safe, and you get carried away into the fantastic sound world created by Fish And Scale.
The songs are impeccably composed and entertain the listener with subtle and intense melodic variations.
A nice discovery that I recommend to everyone.
Unmask Myself is Fish And Scale’s Single Out Now!
Deep and Intense Music!
Fish And Scale aka Roland Wälzlein is a unique German artist who has a growing and dedicated fan base. He is attracting attention all over the world.
Growing up in Franconia (a south part of Germany), as a six year old child he survived a serious heart operation. This life and death experience stayed with him all his life. Existentialist questions are reflected throughout his lyrics. A turning point was his first stay in a “silent retreat”.
“That completely changed my understanding of life and what is.”
Ultimately, he sums up these experiences in all his songs. He describes his music as Independent Folk Music with a mysterious touch. It differs from conventional “folk music” in many aspects. Be it the intense voice, some say you can discover a Mick Jagger coloring, as well as the often unusual song structure, which wonderfully underlines the created mood of depth and authenticity. Something can happen when you listen to his music and there begins the mystery.
