This pair create choons that artfully burrow into the grey matter, making us feel, reminisce and process while pulling shapes (and gurning).
Apricots is tribal-meets-chillout – minimal, emotive and somehow encapsulating diaspora – while Sundial‘s vocal melody calls to mind Aquarius from Hair. If you’re on the dancefloor when the DJ flexes Bicep, you’ll wanna be wearing a T-shirt that reads “Shut Up, I’m Dancing!”; plus trippy, kaleidoscopic sunnies. Heck, you’ll probably even wind up having subliminal conversations with the ghosts of your ancestors to boot!
At once worldly and deferential, Isles is therapy for the mind and bod alike.
Isles by Bicep is out Friday January 22 via Ninja Tune.
