Melody's Echo Chamber releases new single and video "Personal Message"

Following the release of the joyful “Looking Backward”, today Melody’s Echo Chamber releases her majestic new single “Personal Message”, the second track to be taken from her forthcoming third studio album, Emotional Eternal – out 29th April via Domino.  

As with “Looking Backward”, “Personal Message” was recorded with Reine Fiske of Swedish rock-band Dungen and Fredrik Swahn of indie-rock band The Amazing. Melody delivers a blissfully assured vocal performance alongside triumphant, soaring strings; it radiates warmth and charm. “I played violin with Gustav Esjtes of Dungen and Josefin Runsteen,” says Melody. “Josefin has transcended the string section to another dimension with her warm virtuosity.”  

She continued: “I think the music revealed itself so naturally, we didn't change much from the original material. The story is inspired by a place I lived by the sea in the south of France. When something disenchanting happened, I would take refuge near my house on the peninsula under the pines, a natural sanctuary where I sent wishes to the shore, I was soothed by its beauty. The song has this washed out wooden and salty vibe like a marine bird.” 


Directed by David Corfield (BBC) of 422 South, the video for “Personal Message” beautifully captures “the natural sanctuary” that inspired Melody. “On the surface a forest can seem like a collection of individuals but below ground they are united,” Corfield said on the video. “A forest is a system that flourishes through sharing.” 

Melody's Echo Chamber Emotional Eternal

Album | 29th April 2022

Emotional Eternal, the third studio album from Melody’s Echo Chamber, 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.”
