Following up to their debut joint effort released a couple of months ago via XL Recordings, Tessela and Truss return as Overmono with ‘Arla II‘, a six-track EP scheduled for landing on 10th March, in both 12″ and digital formats.
Both innovators in their own right, the Russell brothers don’t take the easy route but instead explore a third path that stands apart from the rest of their respective catalogue. Bridging the gap between fragmentary bass complexions, technoid tropes, rave maximalism and vibrant ambient spans, this new effort remains as mannerly towards the genres it draws its impulse from as it is openly turned towards future-ready music solutions.
Ed and Tom are now exploring these potentialities through a live setting, which some of you may have been lucky enough to experience at the latest iteration of Unsound festival in Krakow last year. Overmono will be performing a number of live and DJ dates throughout 2017.
Arla II is released via XL Recordings on 10th March, pre-order a copy here. A limited edition on marbled vinyl with special artwork sleeve will be available exclusively through the XL Recordings UK & USA webstores.
