“We aim to pull influences from a broad range of inspiration when we write music, our tracks often go through many iterations and directions before we settle on the final ingredients.” explain Bicep. “‘Saku’ feels like a good example of a hybrid for us. We drew from IDM and Footwork via 90s R’n’B, and it was amazing to work with Clara who totally gets that vibe. One of the early demos was 155 BPM and another actually used the vocal from ‘Apricots’ (before it became ‘Apricots’) pitched up. We also had a hang drum melody version but in the end we decided to keep Clara’s voice uncluttered”

Bicep’s ‘Isles’ is the ultimate anti-2021 release: an electronic record made for the club that celebrates cultural unity and diversity. It’s exactly the album to give us all some much-needed hope.
It’s both a comfort and a lament.
