Bicep are set for a series of high profile live dates across the UK and Europe this autumn. Their live show has already graced some of the most revered festival stages, debuting at Coachella and then touring to Glastonbury, Sonar, Pitchfork Festival and Primavera, with Reading and Leeds still to come.
Last year saw them release their debut album, launch their new live show and tour the world. It achieved that rare feat of a crossover dance album, which works as home listening as well as it does on the dance-floor.
The live show embraces the idea of immersion. It allows for the duo to take a different tack at each show, and places them in and amongst the visuals, creating a visceral experience. It blurs the line between audience and performer, amplifying the rush of togetherness – created by the like minded community that’s grown around the duo’s longstanding blog, DJ sets and parties – which pulses through each of their shows.
Visual artist Zak Norman has helped bring Bicep’s live show to life, taking inspiration from the likes of György Ligeti’s ‘Artikulation’. Channeling raw energy in the to-and-fro between individual strands of music and their visual counterparts, it’s a live show for crowds to get lost in.
