With their highly-anticipated new album 'Isles' set to land on the 22nd January via Ninja Tune, Bicep are getting back on the horse as they deliver their brilliant new single 'Sundial'.
Following up the previously shared tracks 'Saku', 'Apricots', and 'Atlas' in previewing the new collection, 'Sundial' shows them back to their ambient best. Mixing a subtle blend of pounding percussion and haunting vocals throughout, we are more than excited to hear what this new record has in store for us.
Speaking about the track, the duo said, “This is probably one of the simplest tracks on the album, it grew from a faulty Jupiter 6 arp recording. Our trigger isn't working properly and the arp skips notes randomly. This was a small segment taken from a recording of Andy just playing the arp live whilst we were just trying to figure out what was going wrong. We actually loved what it had produced and wrote some chords around it, guided by the feeling of this recording.”
