Melody's Echo Chamber makes a welcome return, new album "Emotional Eternal" out 29th April
Today, 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.
