French 4-piece The Psychotic Monks have recently shared their latest single, All That Fall, the newest offering from their upcoming third album, Pink Colour Surgery, set for release on February 3rd via FatCat Records.
Created by a ‘cut-up’ style technique, All That Fall, forces together different materials and lyrics in a completely unique, random way. Speaking of the track, the band state:
We wanted to invite the listeners to consciously or unconsciously produce their own interpretation, leaving a minimalistic moment in the middle of the song where they are left to themselves, entirely free. At each new listen, a new set of new random objects appears. Roles merge, reality and fiction merge, bringing a sense of live performance.’ They continue, ‘Sometimes we can feel our own lives like a total theatrical performance in which we’d perform our own roles, where we can be both spectating and performing. And this can generate a whole complexity of, sometimes contradictory, feelings. Both anxiety-provoking and liberating.
Pink Colour Surgery, produced by Gilla Band’s Daniel Fox, is both radical, and accessible to those who allow themselves to immerse themselves in it in depth. Composed partly in improvisations, the album arrives as an act of resistance towards ambient violence. Live, the band provide an intimate, sensory experience, whose deflagration is still felt long after.
In partnership of the album’s release, The Psychotic Monks embark on a France and Belgium-wide tour, with tickets available now.
