Melody's Echo Chamber: Breathe In/Breathe Out

Is there any more welcome news than the return of Melody's Echo Chamber?

Melody Prochet was one of the leading lights in France's contemporary psychedelic pop scene, but since the release of her 2012 debut album and its subsequent commercial and critical praise, she's had serious health issues that prevented her from pursuing her career with the same energy that's seen some of her contemporaries go on to widespread recognition.

So it's lovely to see that her new album finally scheduled for release in June.

It's entitled Bon Voyage, and a video for the track Breathe In/Breathe Out has been released ahead of the album.

She's described the video as "a little animated fable that resonates greatly with the record" and it's a lovely retro flavoured animation.

The track Cross My Heart came our last year, shortly before an accident derailed plans for live dates and the release of the album last year. Prior to that Shirim emerged in 2014 as a one-off single.

Hopefully we'll see more of Melody in coming months, and while the album's been longer than it should have been, I'm pretty sure it will be worth the wait.
