MELODY’S ECHO CHAMBERJanuary 17, 2013
Welcome to Melody’s Echo Chamber! The solo project of French born singer/songwriter Melody Prochet. The words psychedelic dream pop have never been so exciting…
Melody Prochet is one talented lady. A classically trained musician, multi-instrumentalist and owner of a beautiful singing voice, she can boast a long string of musical endeavors with bands such as Narcoleptic Dancers and My Bees Garden before becoming involved within her Echo Chamber project.
It was her talent and passion that lead her band, My Bees Garden, to support well known scuzzy guitar rockers Tame Impala at a show in Paris. After the show, Melody introduced herself to Impala’s Kevin Parker. Music was discussed, numbers exchanged, and a beautiful musical relationship was born.
The self titled debut album from Melody’s Echo Chamber is the result of these two minds merging, produced by Kevin Parker back home in Australia. Sweet french voice noise, subtle fuzzy guitars, looped beats and avant-garde piano hooks all melt together to create a truly unique psychedelic pop.
