Overmono release new single, ‘Gunk’, from forthcoming EP: Listen

The five-track 'Cash Romantic' is out via XL Recordings next month


Overmono have shared a new single from their forthcoming EP.

Released today, 'Gunk' is taken from the London-based duo's upcoming five-track release, 'Cash Romantic'. Set for digital release via XL Recordings on 8th April, the EP follows on from the likes of last year's 'BMW Track / So U Know', 'Diamond Cut / Bby' and 'Pieces Of 8 / Echo Rush'. A 12" vinyl version of the EP will follow in the coming months.

Speaking about the EP, Overmono, aka siblings Ed and Tom Russell, 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 added. "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."
