Melody Prochet has shared a new single from the upcoming Melody’s Echo Chamber album, Emotional Eternal, following lead cut ‘Looking Backward’. ‘Personal Message’, once again recorded with Dungen’s Reine Fiske and the Amazing’s Fredrik Swahn, comes with a video from director David Corfield of 422 South. Check it out below
“I played violin with Gustav Esjtes of Dungen and Josefin Runsteen,” Prochet said in a statement. “Josefin has transcended the string section to another dimension with her warm virtuosity.”
She continued: “I think the music revealed itself so naturally, we didn’t change much from the original material. The story is inspired by a place I lived by the sea in the south of France. When something disenchanting happened, I would take refuge near my house on the peninsula under the pines, a natural sanctuary where I sent wishes to the shore, I was soothed by its beauty. The song has this washed out wooden and salty vibe like a marine bird.”
Commenting on the video, Corfield said: “On the surface a forest can seem like a collection of individuals but below ground they are united. A forest is a system that flourishes through sharing.”
Emotional Eternal comes out April 29 via Domino.
