Melody’s Echo Chamber is Melody Prochet’s “Parisian pop project,” and really if you’re not sold on that ridiculous descriptor what good are you. Kevin Parker of Tame Impala produced their self-titled album last year, if that helps. But I think you’ll be hooked by this eerie yet funky video for the single “Crystallized.”
Looping his imagery the way the song loops its electronic, hallucinatory gestures, director Zaiba Jabbar builds a similar tension. Indeed, a full two and a half minutes in, this still seems like a track without a chorus. And you never do get one—instead it’s all about the breakdown (aurally, visibly, emotionally). Then: enter the fuzz rock.
