Belfast-raised, London-based duo Bicep have risen over the past five years to become one of house music's most sought after outfits. Their punchy and infectious, dance floor ready style and penchant for sharing good music via their blog saw them gain serious status in the scene. With releases on Throne Of Blood, KMS, Love Fever and their own Feel My Bicep imprint, the pair return to their second home at Will Saul's AUS Music with something with a little less of a straight 4x4 feel. The title track rolls on with bubbling synths and epic strings that rise and fall from the off enthralling you in a hazy trance.

Now, i-D premiere the second cut from the EP. Celeste has a tribal tone that sets pace for the building filtered piano and a swooning distant vocal that builds into the trademark Bicep chord stabs. This one's a vibe!
