Tessela and Truss, better known as Overmono, have released two other 12” projects this year, ‘Pieces Of 8 / Echo Rush’ and ‘BMW Track / So U Kno’.

This year the pair have played at festivals such as We Out Here, Field Day and Gala. ‘Bby’ was the closing track at Overmono’s recent headline show at Village Underground.

The group explained on an Instagram post that they wanted to pay homage to their Bromley studio before its redevelopment. “Before packing the gear down we decided to make one last tune there. this is our little love note to a special little studio in one of London's most uniquely ordinary suburbs”.

Speaking on the new record in a statement, Overmono said: “For the past four years our studio has been in an old magazine printing building."

"After moving in we ripped up the carpets to expose this amazing wooden flooring and thought to ourselves – ‘why the fuck would anyone cover this up?’ – turns out ink from the old print presses that used to be there still comes up through the floor and makes these grimy swirling patterns that slowly shift over weeks and months.”

“Earlier this year, we found out the building was being sold for re-development. We had two weeks to get out. Packing down the studio was left till the very last night and we spent the rest of the time making one last tune there. The chords in 'Bby' are those ink stains. Woozy and morphing, feeling like they might swallow you up.”

XL Recordings will release ‘Diamond Cut / Bby’ on November 19. The project will be available digitally and as a 12" vinyl record.
