Overmono return to XL Recordings with their second EP on 10th March 2017. Arla II is the follow up to last year's debut Arla EP and further crystallizes the duo's immense & innovative sound. This latest 6-tracker from Ed & Tom Russell (known respectively for their solo Tessela and Truss projects) carries things forward from its predecessor in underscoring Overmono as a fully formed & ongoing project.  Instead of searching for commonalities between their earlier individual work, Overmono combines the Russells' artistic talents in order to reach the spaces between ambient, techno & UK hardcore dynamics that few current acts are capable of reaching. Born of the brothers' collective creative impulse and staking out its own defined place in the contemporary landscape of electronic music, Overmono are firmly amongst those pushing the form into new and exciting places.   All of this is now also being explored in a live setting. Having made their debut at Krakow's experimental electronic music festival, Unsound in October 2016, Overmono will be performing a number of live and DJ dates throughout 2017.   STREAM/EMBED 'POWDER DRY' VIA YOUTUBE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lS8dVnGeH2Y  A limited edition of 'Arla II' on marbled vinyl with special artwork sleeve will be available exclusively through the XL Recordings UK & USA webstores.
