Brain-Breaking Doomsday Psychedelia – French Force THE PSYCHOTIC MONKS Drop Single ‘ISOLATION’
Daily fuel to load your batteries
French psychedelic force THE PSYCHOTIC MONKS, formed in 2015,
unleash their new, second longplayer PRIVATE MEANING FIRST this
Friday, 27th November.
The LP was recorded in near-total isolation in the French countryside
where they deliberately created a claustrophobic environment, resulting
in a tense atmosphere that can be heard throughout the album.
Early October they shared the pitch-black, storming lead-single Closure.
Today the band dropped another piece, titled ISOLATION, clearly made to have a brain-breaking impact. No birds and bees fairy tales for these far-out bohemians. Expect a sort of ominous Texas Chainsaw Massacre jam. A Doomsday trip moving like a nasty serpent on its destructive way. A hypnotizing Krautrock trash and slash discharge going forth and back. You have been warned.
This live version is pretty dazzling too…
And here the eye-catching short film for crushing lead-single CLOSER…
