Overmono have shared details of their first release of 2022, a five-track EP called Cash Romantic.

The record, set for release digitally in April and on 12-inch vinyl shortly after, follows on from a busy 2021 for Overmono, which saw them put out three 12-inches – Pieces Of 8 / Echo Rush, BMW Track / So U Kno and Diamond Cut / Bby – and a mix compilation for the fabric presents series. Listen to Cash Romantic's lead cut 'Gunk' above.

Speaking about the new EP in a statement, Overmono said: "We found this box of old tapes we'd recorded when we were kids where we'd basically try and mashup old records of our parents with whatever records we were buying at the time. Gerry Rafferty mixed with London acid techno, Dr. Hook mixed with old weirdo trance tracks, and that sort of thing. The tapes are a proper mess but there was always something about trying to get two totally different worlds to collide that stuck with us. After listening to some of these old tapes, we wrote this record and realised our heads are still pretty much in the same space as when we were kids."

XL will release Cash Romantic on April 8, 2022.
