Album Of The Week: Bicep – Isles


Our pick of the albums reviewed on these pages this week is Isles, new from Bicep – here’s your chance to revisit the review and check out the album via Spotify.

“It’s far from unusual for producers of electronic to turn themselves into live performers – a move paralleling Kraftwerk’s ironic substitution of themselves for dummies and beyond – but it’s been comparatively rare for them to occupy the festival headlining slots reserved for rock bands.”

“There have been exceptions (for instance Orbital, who’ve been toting their Maglite schtick at Glastonbury for what feels like forever) but new blood has felt long overdue, and so it was with some relief when the likes of Disclosure, Maribou State and Bicep emerged, all children of a time long after the original rave and acid house movements kicked up their final dust.”

“Matt McBriar and Andy Ferguson formed Bicep in Northern Ireland over a decade ago, before relocating to a London which in the early part of the last decade was a melting pot of clubbing diversity and largely pretension free nights out.”
