Melody’s Echo Chamber have unveiled the video for ‘Crystalized’, a distorted psychedelic-pop highlight from their eponymous debut album.
Directed by Zaiba Jabbar, the trippy, Technicolor video features breathily voiced chanteuse Melody Prochet repetitively striking a match, destroying a vase of flowers and arguing with a lover.
Zaiba Jabbar said of the video: “The track has a very mellifluous syncopation to it, built from many repetitious looped sounds, so in the film I wanted to visually connect these sounds to simple actions exploring the imminent demise of love. By that I mean the beauty of the beginning and the end and the recursive behaviour that those feelings inspire in between.”
Since teaming up with Kevin Parker of Tame Impala, to produce her debut album (released in November last year), the classically trained musician’s has gained a growing cult following for her combination of glittering electronica and unpredictable sonic outbursts.
