Melody Prochet is an architect of euphonic sanctuaries. Listening to her music, produced under the moniker Melody’s Echo Chamber with co-conspirators Fredrik Swahn and Reine Fiske, is to enter an enveloping, otherwise inaccessible sonic reverie—an escape from the real world, a place in which to idle and fade away for a few minutes. That may sound highfalutin or imprecise, but one of Prochet’s primary inspirations is the natural world—a peninsula in the south of France near her grandmother’s house, a forest of pine trees in the Alps. In that way, she invites parallels to songwriters such as Cassandra Jenkins, whose 2021 album was titled, very literally, An Overview on Phenomenal Nature. More

It’s appropriate that French musician Melody Prochet named her solo project after a dream. The songs on her self-titled debut seem imbued with a logic of their own, spinning psych pop, electronics, and just a whiff of chanson française into a billowy cloud of sound. Although, Prochet admits that the dream that inspired Melody’s Echo Chamber owes more to her nerdy side. More

With a more plunderphonic aesthetic than was present on her debut, Melody Prochet returns to the psych rock fray with a compact seven-track record, entitled Bon Voyage. Here, the Echo Chamber takes on a homegrown sound: with audio samples and spoken word, more nods to French ‘60s and experimental rock, and less homage paid to her Tame Impala ex-partner/producer, Kevin Parker.

The debut album from Melody’s Echo Chamber has sunny, melodic rock and pop at its core, with a dizzying array of orbiting elements that serve equally to enhance the basic theme and to throw your equilibrium into wicked disarray. More
