Feel My Bicep
Belfast-born, London-based duo Bicep (Matt McBriar and Andy Ferguson) released their critically acclaimed second album, “Isles”, on 22 January 2021 on Ninja Tune. The record reached #2 in the Official UK Album Charts, with the duo going on to be nominated for 2 x BRIT Awards, an incredible achievement for an independent electronic act.
Two years in the making, “Isles” expands on the artful energy of their 2017 debut “Bicep”, while digging deeper into the sounds, experiences and emotions that have influenced their lives and work.
Bicep’s globe-trotting sound was forged as their own rapid ascent through the musical ranks began after starting their legendary FeelMyBicep blog in 2008, its humble trove of Italo, house and disco deep cuts grew into a runaway success.
“Bicep” was followed by a massively successful tour, which saw them raise the roof at Primavera, Coachella and Glastonbury before a triumphant three-night sold-out run of shows at Printworks in London. They sold out three forthcoming Brixton Academy shows in a matter of minutes. Additional headline dates across the UK, EU and US are hoped for in 2021, including a headline slot at Field Day in London, as well as performances at Parklife, Roskilde, Creamfields, Primavera, MELT!
