Melody’s Echo Chamber is the nom de tunes of Parisian singer Melody Prochet. For her debut single, “Crystallized”, Prochet teamed with Tame Impalas Kevin Parker to record and mix the track in Perth and at her grandparents’ beach house in CavaliÃ¨re, France. The end result, influenced by the likes of Robert Wyatt and labelmate Spiritualized, deftly fuses expansive psych-rock and simple pop romanticism. Though the multi-layered bursts of hazy guitar and drums reverberate the loudest, Prochet’s voice– part mumble, part wail– is what you should really be listening for. Stream it below.
“Crystallized” will be available as a 7″ later this year via Fat Possum. Prochet will also be on tour in the US this fall, with dates to be announced shortly.
