MELODY’S ECHO CHAMBER – ” Emotional Eternal “

Posted: January 20, 2022 in MUSIC

Melody’s Echo Chamber returns with her heavenly psychedelic pop and the announcement that her magnificent third studio album, “Emotional Eternal”is due for release on 29th April via Domino. First preview from the forthcoming album comes in the form of the joyful ode, “Looking Backward”.

Emotional Eternal” is a glorious consolidation of the lessons learned along the way, seen through the eyes of someone who has taken a step back, and who can see clearly as a result. As with her previous acclaimed 2018 album “Bon Voyage”this album was initially recorded in the outskirts of Stockholm, with Reine Fiske, the multi-instrumentalist member of Swedish rock-band Dungen who has worked with the likes of Travis Scott and Anna Järvinen, and Fredrik Swahn, the musician, producer and engineer best known for his work with Swedish indie-rock band The Amazing.

“I hope the record has that uplifting quality,” says Melody. “I wanted to be more grounded and mindful through the process. I guided the sessions with simplicity—a contrast with the maximalism of Bon Voyage and the wilderness of my delusions. I made some big and impactful decisions and changes to my life. It took me to where it is peaceful, and I think the record reflects this. It’s more direct.”

“Looking Backward”, the new single out today, features Melody’s blissful falsetto tones alongside playful drums and bass and soothing synths. Sonically uplifting yet lyrically introspective at the same time, it marks a welcome return of the ever-enchanting artist.

For the “Looking Backward” video, Melody collaborated with Unreal Engine specialist 3D artist Hyoyon Paik (Chlöe) to create the story of a Metawoman’s eerie journey through a beautifully constructed yet distorted otherworld.

“’Looking Backward’ is a vivid, nonchalant, poetic march to the Unknown,” says Melody of the track. “I wrote the lyrics on my way to Stockholm, in transit at the airport, there was a man creating light reflections with his watch and playing with light on the floors and walls. It felt like an act coming from a source of pure creativity, it made me happy to catch it and inspired me to write the song.”

Emotional Eternal” is a deeply human collection of songs full of prolonged moments of sonic transcendency – a record that clearly exhibits its maturity but still regards the world with a childlike wonder. Having swapped Paris for the clean air of the Alps, Melody hopes “the record has that uplifting quality. I made some big and impactful decisions and changes to my life. It took me to where it is peaceful, and I think the record reflects this.”
