Given how much her music sounds like the band Beach House, it’s fitting that Melody Prochet decamped to her grandparents’ house on the coast to finish this LP. There are immediate, but not overbearing, similarities with Beach House’s bliss-pop, and elements too of Stereolab and Blonde Redhead in 25-year-old Prochet’s spectral singing, which flips between French and English. But what distinguishes this record are the experimental tendencies drawn out by her collaborator, Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker. Melody’s airy incantations wed to Silver Apples-esque psych grooves, distorted guitars, and dislocating instrumental breaks makes this debut both thrilling and fresh.
