Overmono Debut “Good Lies”
Overmono are back with new single “Good Lies”, the title track taken from their debut album, out via XL Recordings on Friday, May 12. “Good Lies”, features vocals from Norwegian act Smerz, which are layered over a skittering two-step beat, synths, and rumbling bassline to create a euphoric, pop-leaning track that shines.
On release week, Overmono will drop into Rough Trade East in London (May 11) and Rough Trade Bristol (May 15) for an album signing and exclusive DJ set with friends. Tickets are on sale now via DICE. Each ticket includes a physical copy of their new album to be collected on the day
Overmono says “Good lies was the first track we wrote that we knew was going to be part of the album. The range of influences we were feeling at the time, the type of sounds we were messing around with in the studio – it felt like the type of track that brought together everything we wanted the album to be in our heads. It was actually in demo form the whole time we were working on the rest of the music and It was only once we had the other tracks, that we knew how to finish it…actually, on the morning we had to master the album”
“Good Lies” together with previously released “Is U”, “Walk Thru Water” and “Calling Out” show the effortless blend of disparate styles, genres, and influences the duo brings into the 12-track album. On Good Lies, Overmono present a comprehensive realisation of the innovative sound they have cultivated over the last few years. Vocal samples that were once directly about love are remoulded into a series of multi-genre electronic sounds that are as powerfully euphoric as they are melancholic depending on the listener’s mood that day.
To tease the music from the album, Overmono have worked with long-time collaborator and acclaimed artist Rollo Jackson on a visual journey through the creative world of Overmono using the duo’s signature Dobermann. Today, Overmono add to the previously released pieces for “Is U”, “Walk Thru Water” and “Calling Out” with the stunning fourth chapter. Watch it here.
Overmono will head to North America for a headline tour, as well as taking their impressive live audio-visual show to Coachella for a debut performance and appearing as special guests for The Chemical Brothers. This is all before returning to Europe for a summer of festival shows at the likes of GALA, AVA Festival, Primavera Sound, and Otherlands. For more information head to overmono.com.
