Belfast-hailing duo Bicep will release their self-titled debut album on September 1 via Ninja Tune. It contains 12 tracks and will touch upon genres including house, techno, electro, and Italo disco. Alongside the news, they've shared the stormy lead single, "Aura," which is streaming below.
"It was a happy experiment… you might call it an accident," they said of the track in a press release. "We'd been playing with this specific and very complicated gear-chain for a while but nothing worked, or didn't feel musical enough… then it all just fell into place and 'Aura' appeared."
Bicep have been producing for nearly eight years for the likes of Throne of Blood, Love Fever, and Aus Music, but the duo of Matt McBriar and Andy Ferguson first came into recognition as club-music tastemakers via their blog, Feel My Bicep.
Following Bicep's release, they'll head out to tour across Europe, Asia, and the U.S., with the latter leg including stops in Los Angeles and New York. View those dates below.
