Ireland's Bicep take a turn towards techno on their new EP for Will Saul's Aus Music label — their first new material since their Satisfy EP last November. Bicep are best known for deep, disco-leaning house music of a faintly retro bent, but on "Circles," they jettison the diva samples and the acid-house flashbacks in favor of a tougher, quicker, and above all corkscrewier groove. Deep in the mix, a low voice mutters something indistinct, but it hardly matters what. Those shuffling 909s and glowing synths tell you everything you need to know: This is machine music for machine people.

"Circles" is out May 19, backed with the equally Detroit-inspired "NRG106." Listen to the song in full below.
