Melodyâ€™s Echo Chamber is the solo project of Paris-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Melody Prochet. The first MEC album, produced with Tame Impalaâ€™s Kevin Parker, was released in 2012 to critical acclaim for its lush psychedelia and adventurous spirit by Les Inrocks, Vogue, Rolling Stone, and Pitchfork.
Prochet cited influences as diverse as Erik Satie, Can, and Stereolab for the recordâ€™s sound. MEC toured extensively in support of the album in 2012-13, with high-profile festival slots at Montreux Jazz Festival, Primavera Sound, and Glastonbury. In October of 2014, Prochet released new single â€œShirimâ€ on her own label Rayon Vert. NME praised the song for being â€œcelestial and authoritative, but also wonderfully unhinged,â€ and NPR called the track â€œsweet, psychedelic, and magical.â€
The second album by Melodyâ€™s Echo Chamber was released in the spring of 2015.
