Overmono have released a new EP, 'Cash Romantic'. Check it out below.
Released digitally via XL Recordings today, the EP spans garage, breakbeat, dub and ambient across its five tracks. Featuring recent singles 'Gfortune' and 'Gunk', the EP will also be released on 12" vinyl in the coming months.
Speaking about the EP - which you can stream below - the London-based sibling duo and current DJ Mag UK cover stars said: "We found this box of old tapes we’d recorded when we were kids where we’d basically try and mashup old records of our parents with whatever records we were buying at the time. Gerry Rafferty mixed with London acid techno, Dr. Hook mixed with old weirdo trance tracks, and that sort of thing."
"The tapes are a proper mess but there was always something about trying to get two totally different worlds to collide that stuck with us," they continued. "After listening to some of these old tapes, we wrote this record and realised our heads are still pretty much in the same space as when we were kids."
'Cash Romantic' follows the two-tracker 'Diamond Cut/Bby', which came out last November.
In June, the duo will join the likes of Bonobo, LSDXOXO and Lyra Pramuk in playing Sónar Barcelona 2022. Keep an eye out for Overmono's DJ Mag cover feature online next week.
