After two fiery albums, Silence Slowly And Madly Shines in 2017 (Alter K) and Private Meaning First in 2019 (Vicious Circle / FatCat Records), the members of The Psychotic Monks have never ceased to impress us with their maturity and determination to offer a singular stage and discographic presence. Their 3rd album, Pink Colour Surgery (Vicious Circle / FatCat Records), produced by Daniel Fox of the Gilla Band and composed in part by improvisations, finally arrives as an act of resistance to the ambient violence.

Disconcerting at first sight, this new opus operates in the dark a surgery of the ethics which is fleshed out of pink for a staggering metamorphosis. Its very structure embarks us entirely in an initiatory trip full of secret corners, provided that we accept to dive into it, to plunge into it. Yet radical, this work is truly accessible to those who immerse themselves in it in depth. One is unceasingly hypnotized, shaken, because its soul flirts dangerously with a furious and oppressive trance. How then the journey becomes addictive, letting oneself slide from one beach to the other, sometimes struck, sometimes set ablaze with an unexpected epiphany, because its light irradiates us. To live their music is then an intimate, sensory experience, whose deflagration is still received long after. 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.
