With a run of knockout singles on XL reaching back to 2016, Tom and Ed Russell finally deliver the album we always knew they had in them. Overmono is a project which happily gorges on the best bits of rave culture and spits back out something fresh, universal and yet still headsy enough to keep the underground faithful happy. Good Lies builds on that promise in every way, threading in anthemic vocal hooks and massive emotive brushstrokes without losing that legit bite which has made them so enduringly popular. ‘Is U’ has an eye on the charts for sure, with plenty of big festival moments bagged along the way for their live shows and everyone else DJ sets. ‘Walk Thru Water’ hits a more melancholic note with St. Panther on vocals, but it’s still masterfully crafted to bring out joyous escapism with gnarly synth flex on top. Something for everyone, then.
