“Blind Date” was first performed by Overmono this summer at festivals including Glastonbury, We Out Here and Dekmantel. “You may have heard me (luge) hammering it in my sets all summer or as a standout part of the T&E live show,” Joy Orbison said on Instagram.

“The first Joy Overmono collaboration was forged in the boys’ old studio in Bromley and came together very quickly – we just clicked from the start,” he explained. “Getting away from Bromley was traumatic for obvious reasons and as a result this one took a little longer.”

“We ended up working on this track in about 4 or 5 different studios, including a crazy trip to Peter Gabriel’s country pad. The three of us often have a very clear idea of ​​what we want to do together and we’ve been fine-tuning it for quite a while now.
