Bicep deliver long-awaited sophomore LP, ‘Isles’
After captivating the electronic scene with their 2017 self-titled debut album, Bicep stun once again as they close out the four year gap with the delivery of sophomore LP, Isles. Inaugurated by lead single “Atlas,” which also marked the UK duo’s first single in two years, the long-awaited record dropped off four total singles before its imminent landing, including “Apricots,” “Saku,” featuring Clara La San and “Sundial.” Expounding a deeper look into sounds and experiences that comprise their artistic foundation, Bicep explore the vast complexity of emotions and inspirations available through sonic creation in their latest output.
Sentiments from Bicep’s personal electronic music chronology through Belfast to London permeate the 10-track LP, which engages ravey breakbeats, diverse vocal influences, and retro-futuristic callings throughout various degrees. Nostalgic, emotive, and vivacious all at once, Isles encompasses the bittersweet dance productions resonant with audiences in a renewed exploration.
