The Psychotic Monks

Pink Colour Surgery

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

    Although radical, ‘Pink Colour Surgery’’s work is truly accessible to those who immerse themselves in its in depth. One is unceasingly hypnotised, shaken, as their 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, the affects of which continue to be felt for a long time afterwards.

    Now they announce their third album ‘Pink Colour Surgery’, out 3rd February 2022 via FatCat Records, recorded and produced by Daniel Fox of Gilla Band - it’s composed in part by improvisations, and is presented 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 takes the listener on an initiatory trip full of secret corners, provided they are prepared to dive into it, to plunge into it.

    ‘Pink Colour Surgery’ is like a hidden room in a house that we have never entered before, and the possibility of feeling good there is not excluded.

    Glasgow’s prodigious talent C Duncan released his critically acclaimed and Mercury Prize nominated debut full-length ‘Architect’ last July, wrapping up an extremely successful first year with a headline tour and stunning sell-out performance at Union Chapel.

    Follow up 'The Midnight Sun’ sees the bedroom producer return with a more expansive and experimental second offering, blending electronic elements and sweeping synth sounds with his signature layered vocals and dreamy instrumentation.

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Barry says: Pulsing sidechained synthetic swells and driven bass throbs are joined by soaring, angelic vocal echoes and shimmering falsetto sweeps. In parts delicate and restrained, but gracefully segued into comforting and glimmering shoegaze/pop masterpieces. A relaxing and tenderly flourished collection of ambient gems.
