Good Lies - Transparent Vinyl
- XL Recordings
Following a long stretch of EPs, 12”s and mixes that stretch back to 2016, Overmono’s Tom and Ed Russell deliver their first formal album in 2023. ‘Good Lies’ is a brilliant introduction to the Overmono experience, mixing house, garage and techno sounds with high-pitched vocal samples, and includes their breakout 2021 hit ‘So U Kno’.
Highly anticipated would be an understatement; since their inception Overmono have purposefully cultivated a fanbase that heralds them as one of the UK’s most original contemporary live electronic acts. A run of ground-breaking club EPs between 2020 and 2022 built momentum and culminated in their breakthrough club single, ‘So U Kno’, which encapsulated the hearts of clubbers and went on to become a bonafide phenomenon as dancefloors re-opened.
Since then, Overmono have been named ‘Best Live Act’ at the prestigious DJ Mag Best of British Awards, taken their custom audio-visual live show to the most credible festivals across the globe, including Glastonbury, Movement Festival, Dekmantel, and produced innovative releases including their installment of their ‘Fabric Presents’ DJ mix series and collaborations with Joy Orbison.
Now, Overmono return to present their most ambitious release to date. Across the twelve-track project, Overmono journey through a powerful distillation of their musical career so far; incorporating 'So U Kno' alongside new music that propels them beyond the dancefloor. Good Lies remoulds and interweaves captivating vocal cuts into a series of multi-genre electronic sounds that flits effortlessly between euphoria and melancholy in the same 4-bar loop.
