With their highly-anticipated second album ‘Isles’ landing on 22nd January via Ninja Tune, Bicep are giving us our final teaser in the form of new single ‘Sundial’.
Speaking of the track, the duo say, “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.”
Listen to ‘Sundial’ below.

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.
The track features on their upcoming new album ‘Isles’.
