Melody’s Echo Chamber (aka Melody Prochet) established herself as a psychedelic favorite with her 2012 self-titled debut album, but unfortunately, albums have been few and far between since then. She followed it up with 2018’s Bon Voyage and that’s her most recently released album. Thankfully, a new one is on the way, as today, she announced Emotional Eternal, which is set for release on April 29. She also shared a video for “Looking Backward” today, a spacey and groove-driven single.
Press materials describe the album as “a glorious consolidation of the lessons learned along the way, seen through the eyes of someone who has taken a step back, and who can see clearly as a result.” Prochet also says of the new song, “‘Looking Backward’ is a vivid, nonchalant, poetic march to the Unknown. I wrote the lyrics on my way to Stockholm, in transit at the airport, there was a man creating light reflections with his watch and playing with light on the floors and walls. It felt like an act coming from a source of pure creativity, it made me happy to catch it and inspired me to write the song.”
Director Hyoyon Paik also noted of the video, “It was a truly joyful experience to tap into Melody’s world and use my CGI skill to visualize it. This piece demonstrates how artists can utilize digital avatars and CGI to deliver a grander and more immersive narrative in this exciting time, where the digital world and reality are integrated more than ever before.”
