Selected Reviews and Comments

Produced by Gilla Band’s Daniel Fox, France’s The Psychotic Monks release new album Pink Colour Surgery today via Fatcat Records / Vicious Circle. It includes singles ‘Post-Post-’, ‘All That Fall’, and ‘Crash’.

Yet radical, Pink Colour Surgery’s work is truly accessible to those who immerse themselves in it in depth. One is unceasingly hypnotised, shaken, because its soul flirts dangerously with a furious and oppressive trance. How then the journey becomes addictive, letting yourself slide from one track to another, sometimes struck, sometimes set ablaze with an unexpected epiphany, because its light irradiates us. Live their music is an intimate, sensory experience, whose deflagration is still received long after.

Composed in part by improvisations, it arrives as an act of resistance to the ambient violence. Disconcerting at first sight, this new opus operates in the dark a surgery of ethics which is fleshed out of pink for a staggering metamorphosis. Its very structure embarks us entirely on an initiatory trip full of secret corners, provided that we accept to dive into it, to plunge into it.

Already releasing two fiery albums, Silence Slowly And Madly Shines in 2017 (Alter K) and Private Meaning First in 2019 (Vicious Circle / Fatcat Records), The Psychotic Monks have never ceased to impress us with their maturity and determination to offer a singular stage and discographic presence.

Their only UK performance takes place at London’s Pickle Factory on 4th March with tickets on sale now here.
