Overmono return with “Calling Out”, the latest single to be released from their highly anticipated debut album, Good Lies, out Friday 12th May 2023 via XL Recordings
“Calling Out” has a spine-tingling immersive quality to it; vocal cuts from CASISDEAD and Slowthai spiral around pulsating synths and a grimey two-step beat.
Speaking on the track, Overmono state: “We’ve had these chords written for quite a while now and could never find quite the right context for them. One night we were procrastinating in the studio, mostly just drinking and slamming some CASISDEAD and slowthai tracks. We’d been listening to them a lot as they have an incredible way of consistently delivering unexpected music and we find that approach really inspiring. Then we had a bit of a eureka moment and realised it might have been the type of sound we were looking to go with alongside that chord progression so we stayed up all night and finally got it done.”
The new single comes alongside a new cinematic piece, directed by long-time collaborator, photographer and film-maker Rollo Jackson. It’s the next instalment in the album series, which together with the visual teasers “Is U” and “Walk Thru Water” allows fans to journey through the creative world of Overmono; alongside the duo’s signature Dobermann.
