Crumb and Melody’s Echo Chamber have teamed up for a new single entitled “Le Temple Volant.” The psych-pop bop features the former group’s signature blend of dusty drum loops and jazz-inspired spontaneity, while Melody Prochet offers up a delightful near-falsetto that gives the song the feeling of floating through the clouds. Later on, Crumb vocalist Lila Ramani provides melodic support.
The song was co-written by Melody and the band, and is accompanied by a DIY home video-inspired visual directed by Phil McGill which, funnily enough, documents the first face-to-face meeting between Crumb and Melody (they recorded their performances for the track separately).
Both acts reflected on the collaboration, with Melody having said, “I remember the first time I heard Crumb’s music, it was the song ‘Locket’ that blew my mind.” The band added, “[Melody’s] music feels deeply nostalgic and so intertwined with that tender period of first starting the band.”
