Bicep have today released “ Isles”, an album which expands on the artful energy of their 2017 debut “Bicep”, while digging deeper into the sounds, experiences and emotions that have influenced their lives and work, from early days clubbing in Belfast to their move to London a decade ago.
With the live music & touring industry in a state of flux, and following the huge success of their 2020 ticketed livestream—one of the first of its kind for an electronic artist, broadcast across 5 different timezones, and watched by people in over 70 countries, dancing in their living rooms to make shift sound systems—Bicep will return with another unique performance on February 26th 2021. Filmed at London’s Saatchi Gallery, and comprising an extended live performance, with additional warm-up act to be announced, the show will once again feature visuals from close BICEP LIVE collaborator Black Box Echo.
Bicep’s new album “Isles” is released today on Ninja Tune, and is available on cassette, CD, vinyl—including deluxe and picture disc versions—as well as all streaming platforms.
As part of the release-day celebrations fans were able to upload videos of themselves using the “Isles” filter on Instagram—stepping into the studio Degau designed artwork—with the collected footage being projected today across landmarks in London and Belfast, in partnership with Amazon Music.
