Overmono release soaring new single ‘Calling Out’
The track is taken from the Russell brothers’ upcoming debut album ‘Good Lies’ due May 12 via XL
UK duo Overmono (AKA Tom Russell and Ed Russell) have today (February 22) released a new single ‘Calling Out’, via XL Recordings.
It’s taken from their upcoming debut studio album ‘Good Lies’, which is due to drop on May 12.
Featuring vocal samples from CASISDEAD and Slowthai, the song is a builder with dramatic trancey synths set over a two-step beat.
Explaining the process of making the track, the brothers said: “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,” they continued.
“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.”
