Bicep sign to Ninja Tune for new Album
Bicep – the Belfast-born, London-based duo of Matt McBriar and Andy Ferguson have signed to Ninja Tune and announced their self-titled debut album, which is due out in September.
With the announcement, they have also shared lead single ‘Aura’, which you can hear below. It’s a complex and propulsive club track that channels their love for all things synth related. Until now, Aura has simply been tagged as ‘Unreleased Bicep’ on countless bootleg recordings from recent gigs with thousands of streams, uploaded by fans trying desperately to ID and get their hands on the track.
They said “It was a happy experiment… you might call it an accident,” they explain. “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.”
