With their highly-anticipated new album set to arrive early next year, Bicep have now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Saku' sees them team up with vocalist Clara La San, and follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Apricots' in previewing their sophomore LP 'Isles', which arrives on the 22nd January via Ninja Tune.
Speaking about the new offering, they said, “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. ‘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”
