Overmono release ‘Diamond Cut/Bby’ on XL Recordings
Today Overmono release ‘Diamond Cut/Bby’, their new 12” on XL Recordings.
The duo – made up brothers Tom and Ed Russell (Aka Truss & Tessela, respectively) – announced the double single at the end of September, with the first single ‘Bby’ also getting a debut in their sold-out Village Underground live show.
Overmono have become one of the most sought-after live acts, following highlight shows at Greenman, We Out Here, Field Day and Gala. This year also saw the release of their acclaimed ‘Fabric Presents Overmono’ compilation, which included their summer anthem ‘So U Know’.
Speaking about the release of ‘Bby’, the pair said: “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.”
