From their third album PINK OBSESSION. We Ask For Pain is a critical of the way most of us are still living whereas we are all conscious of the current state of emergency we are drowning in. Complaisance in futile pleasures overrides danger and most of us hopes for a better future without acting for it. In the video clip, the two young girls are the representation of this recklessness and casualness, taking pictures of themselves, laughing and flirting whereas we can feel an uneasy feeling, violence became ordinary and insignificant in front of shallowness. At the same time, we have this character (played by the singer Ophelia) who is telling her story (dressed in a BDSM harness), conscient that she’s dying but maybe willing of her fate…
Pink Obsession is leaving these sombre and concrete waters to embrace artificial sparkling neon skies. Indeed, synth is getting its full scope pushing intentionally guitars into the emotional background, whereas vocals are becoming prominent, leaving ethereal scales and sending out a shameless message to the listener’s ear, like interior voices in BPD or We Ask For Pain. The electro-pop tone dominates to deliver colorful landscapes like so many states of mind, sometimes marred by a few recollections from the past incarnated by a little child’s voice on Solstice, still imploring or avenging guitars on Incubus Mine. Like a slow relief process towards lightness of being, pink color is the new black.
