Bicep have shared yet another single from their forthcoming sophomore album, Isles.
Titled “Saku,” the new track is the third single from Isles, and follows the previously released songs “Apricots” and “Atlas.” The Belfast duo layer Clara La San’s delicate vocals atop a generously processed house beat. On it, she croons: “I just need to feel what I felt before / Can you help me feel what I’m waiting for.”
“We aim to pull influences from a broad range of inspiration when we write music. Our tracks often go through many iterations and directions before we settle on the final ingredients,” Bicep explained in a statement. “‘Saku’ feels like a good example of a hybrid for us. We drew from IDM and footwork via ’90s R&B, and it was amazing to work with Clara who totally gets that vibe.”
Isles is set for release on January 22, 2021. In the meantime, check out the trippy animated visual for “Saku” below:
