‘Isles’ is now available as a deluxe 3LP in gatefold ‘Curious Matter’ printed colour and Pantone sleeve, pressed on purple triple vinyl housed in purple paper inner sleeves with digital download code. This deluxe format includes three additional tracks.
Belfast-born London-based duo Bicep (Matt McBriar and Andy Ferguson) release their hotly anticipated second album ‘Isles’, via Ninja Tune.
Two years in the making, ‘Isles’ expands on the artful energy of their 2018 debut ‘Bicep’, while digging deeper into the sounds, experiences and emotions that have influenced their lives and work, from early days in Belfast to their move to London a decade ago.
Lead track ‘Apricots’ is steeped in a shimmering bath of warm synths, its spare percussion and arresting vocals bring big room chills while still evoking something lost or forlorn.
