The follow-up to Melody Prochet’s 2012 breakthrough as Melody’s Echo Chamber has seen its share of setbacks: An earlier sophomore effort made with Tame Impala frontman (and Prochet’s former partner) Kevin Parker was abandoned after years of work, with some tracks making it to the 2016 EP From Pink They Fell Into Blue, and just when Prochet announced Bon Voyage a year ago, the 31-year-old French singer took a serious fall that left her in the hospital for months. The anything-goes escapism of Bon Voyage makes for a potent, well-earned return, then, where tracks like “Cross My Heart” and “Desert Horse” freely and confidently indulge in the every musical whim of Prochet and her collaborators, Swedish psych musicians Fredrik Swahn (The Amazing) and Reine Fiske (Dungen). Sun-bleached psych pop, funky hip-hop breakdowns, and sprawling rock experimentalism all coexist here—and usually in the same, mind-bending song.
