This Tuesday, the Paris-based psych-rock chanteuse Melody Prochet shared the lead single to her forthcoming, sophomore album as Melody’s Echo Chamber, “Shirim.” Within a few days, though, all traces of the song were removed from the internet due to a copyright claim by [Merlin] Domino Recording Co., the independent U.K. label Prochet intends to distribute the new album on (you can buy the single on iTunes or stream it below). The album is set for release in early spring, and this tenacious new offering insinuates a very bold, self-determined shift for the young singer-songwriter-artist-producer. Whereas the majority of her 2012 self-titled debut was co-produced by musical-romantic cohort (Tame Impala frontman) Kevin Parker, “Shirim” was written and produced entirely by Prochet. It’s a turbulent and heavily arranged, decadent hypno-groove that brings wry guitar licks and soaring vocal hooks to the fore. Watch a small child interview Melody Prochet for the “Kids Interview Bands” video series below.
Update: Melody’s Echo Camber will self-release her forthcoming sophomore album.
