Overmono announce new EP with electric new single ‘Gunk’

In-form duo Overmono release their new single “Gunk”.

Following recent releases “BMW Track / So U Kno”, “Diamond Cut / Bby” and “Pieces Of 8 / Echo Rush”, Scottish duo Overmono drop “Gunk” — originally premiered at their sold-out headline show at London’s historic York Hall last month.

“Gunk” is the first track to be released from a new Overmono EP. The five-track Cash Romantic EP will be released digitally on April 8th via XL Recordings, with the 12” vinyl to follow in the coming months.

The EP marks a new phase in the duo’s evolution; one that sees them introducing a broader spectrum to their deft compositions to take their unique sound beyond the dancefloor.

Speaking on the forthcoming EP, the pair explain: “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. 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’ is out via XL Recordings on April 8th and is available for pre-order here.
