Melody’s Echo Chamber has shared a new single, ‘Alma’, lifted from her upcoming third album Emotional Eternal. The track arrives with a music video directed by Hyoyon Paik (Chloë), who also helmed the visual for lead cut ‘Looking Backward’. Check it out below.
“To me this song is a butterfly,” Melody Prochet remarked in a statement. “It feels more like a little poem to life than a song; it was the first song to arise from the echoes of silence since Bon Voyage. I think I recorded the emotion of that kind of spiritual experience of the essential yet heart-breaking separation from the pure love bubble to the world of others.”
She continued: “We recorded ‘Alma’ in Swahn’s studio in Stockholm again; I remember we gave special attention to the groove, to give it a swing and emphasis on the light side, with a minor sound of danger in the veil of the mist somewhere. Johan Holmegaard played drums, Gustav Estjes played the piano and little velvet flute; Josephin Runsteen created transcending strings and noises directed by Reine and Swahn.”
