Bicep have announced their self-titled debut album, which will be released via Ninja Tune on September 1st. In addition to the news about the album, the London-based duo have released the LP's lead single “Aura”.
The single is something fans have been waiting for a long time and straddles the line between many different genres with its long, synth-heavy build and delicate percussion.
“It was a happy experiment…you might call it an accident,” they explain 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.”
The self-titled album clocks in at 11 songs, all of which are just one word. Original.
