In-form duo Overmono announce their new 12″ entitled Diamond Cut/Bby via XL Recordings, with “Bby” dropping today.
Used as the closing track of their set at the Village Underground, “Bby” is a natural follow on from this activity, a brooding, stripped back 2-step banger with an infectious vocal hook – perfect for autumn and winter raving.
Speaking on the release, Overmono state: “For the past 4 years our studio has been in an old magazine printing building. after moving in we ripped up the carpets to expose this amazing wooden flooring and thought to ourselves – ‘why the fuck would anyone cover this up?’ – turns out ink from the old print presses that used to be there still comes up through the floor and makes these grimy swirling patterns that slowly shift over weeks and months.“
“Earlier this year we found out the building was being sold for re-development. We had two weeks to get out. Packing down the studio was left till the very last night and we spent the rest of the time making one last tune there. The chords in “Bby” are those ink stains. Woozy and morphing, feeling like they might swallow you up.”
‘Diamond Cut/ Bby” is releasing November 11th and is available to pre-order on Bandcamp.
