The Psychotic Monks

Talking Through Repetition

    One year after the release of their studio album ‘Pink Color Surgery’, The Psychotic Monks return to us more assertive than ever with ‘Talking Through Repetition’. Renowned for their fiery, experimental and emotionally charged live performances, The Psychotic Monks decided to share the vital essence of their music to a wider audience by recording their current live set.

    Recorded between shows in Dijon and Dunkerque during the bands 2023 tour, the live set (of track taken from ‘Pink Colour Surgery’) was recorded in one take at the legendary La Frette studios (Nick Cave, Arctic Monkeys), and once again stylishly produced by accomplice Daniel Fox (Gilla Band, Lambrini Girls, Sprints) and mastered by Jamie Hyland (CASKRÉ).

    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.

      Third album ‘Pink Colour Surgery’, recorded and produced by Daniel Fox of Gilla Band is 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.
