Bicep have announced the release of a new track, ‘Mele (II)’, as well as their biggest UK show to date at Alexandra Palace on 3rd December 2022.
‘Mele (II)’ is out now, and is a rework of ‘Meli (I)’, from the deluxe version of their January released album, ‘Isles’.
Speaking about the track in the press release announcing the track, the duo said, “’Meli (I)’ was a beatless track on ‘Isles Deluxe’. Truth be told we just couldn’t get a drum version right in the studio throughout the pandemic, there were many failed demo versions whilst we were working on ‘Isles’, it just never felt like it worked.
“We always knew there was room for this version though, hence naming the original ‘Meli (I)’. ‘Meli (II)’ was formed slowly on the road. Each week we changed the drums a bit, the structure and generally allowed the crowd to inform the process. It was great to grow the track in this way, it felt like a very organic way of working.”
Tickets for Bicep’s show at Alexandra Palace on 3rd December 2022 go on sale this Friday 1st July here. You can watch Bicep perform ‘Mele (II)’ on the West Holts Stage at Glastonbury 2022 below and listen to it here.
