Bicep, the Belfast-born, London-based duo of Matt McBriar and Andy Ferguson, return to Ninja Tune with their great new single “Atlas”, which marks the pair’s first original material in two years since 2018’s “Rain” EP. Recorded in their new studio space, “Atlas” is six minutes of unmistakable Bicep. With synth lines that ebb and flow across broken percussion and ethereal vocal snatches, the track was conceived as they toured their immense live-show across the globe.

In their own words: “It would’ve been unthinkable to foresee the circumstances this track would be released in when we were making it. Our frame of mind was so positive then, fresh off the back of our live tour, full of excitement for the next phase. ‘Atlas’ was our attempt at summing up some of the euphoric moments we experienced on that tour across those two years. It feels like those moments are very far away for all of us right now, but we hope this serves as some form of distraction amidst all this chaos.”

“Atlas” is out now via Ninja Tune. Buy it here.
