Overmono announce new EP Cash Romantic, share first single Gunk

Overmono by Rollo Jackson

The duo’s upcoming release, Cash Romantic, is set to drop on 8 April via XL Recordings.

Today (8 March) Overmono have shared the first new single, Gunk, from their forthcoming EP. The pair premiered the track at their sold-out headline London show last month.

Gunk is taken from Cash Romantic, which features five new tracks from Overmono. Last year, the pair released a string of double-singles, including BMW Track / So U Kno, Diamond Cut / Bby and Pieces of 8 / Echo Rush.

In a statement on the new release they 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. 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.”

Overmono are set to perform at this year’s Sónar Lisboa alongside the likes of Arca, Bicep, Nikisi and Thundercat.

XL Recordings will release Cash Romantic digitally on 8 April with the 12-inch vinyl following in the coming months. Pre-order here and listen to Gunk below.
