Melody’s Echo Chamber is the solo project of Parisian musician Melody Prochet, formerly of My Bee’s Garden. As the story goes, Prochet’s band was supporting Australian psych rock outfit, Tame Impala. Intrigued by the band’s sound, Prochet approached Tame Impala‘s Kevin Parker and asked him to engineer her solo album plans. He agreed.
The result is Melody’s Echo Chamber, Prochet’s solo band and the name of her debut record. Forgoing her classically trained influence, Melody’s Echo Chamber, as the name implies, embraces chamber pop music with strong hints of the psychedelia and bass lines of Tame Impala. It’s an intriguing debut well worth your listen especially if you, like me, are a fan of ethereal female fronted music.
