BELFAST duo Bicep have returned with a new video for ‘Apricots’, the lead single taken from forthcoming second album Isles, out on January 22nd next year via the brilliant Ninja Tune label.
The single features a couple of notable samples – traditional Malawian-singers recorded in 1958, and a 1950s’ performance by The Bulgarian State Radio & Television Female Vocal Choir. They’re wound together into this bubbling techno track, with warm synths and arching bass. If it doesn’t get you in the mood for moving, there’s got to be something wrong with you.
Check out the accompanying video, directed by Mark Jenkin, who recently took home a 2020 BAFTA for Outstanding Debut by a British Director for his 2019 film, Bait.
