Bicep advance ‘Isles’ album rollout with ‘Apricots’
In March, Bicep emerged from the woodwork to release “Atlas,” their first single in two years. Nearly seven months later, Bicep have announced the imminent arrival of their sophomore LP, Isles, set for a January 22, 2021 release via Ninja Tune. The announcement arrives on the three-year anniversary of their self-titled debut record.
Accompanying the news is “Apricots,” Isles‘ second single. “Apricots” is Bicep at their best; the track alternates between tension and resolution consistently while a sturdy percussion pattern keeps the song’s energy high. The single’s frenetic yet captivating video was created by writer and director Mark Jenkin.
Bicep have also announced their new “FeelMyBicep Radio” show, slated to launch on Apple Music in October. The show will dive into the music that has shaped and inspired Bicep with monthly episodes over 2021.
