About Ela Orleans
Ela Orleans invites us into a dreamily slow and cinematically evocative narrative world with her music. Ela Orleans is a Polish musician now based in Glasgow, Scotland, having arrived there by way of Brooklyn NY. She was a member of heavenly pop collagists Hassle Hound, has played with various luminaries of the New York experimental and noise scenes and is a composer for TV.
Ela Orleans has a unique voice, gifting us fragile harmonies which are exquisite without being sentimental. She is Moondogmatic in her intransigent commitment to producing compositions of subtlety and incongruent beauty. She has a number of solo recordings and numerous collaborative releases on labels such as Clan Destine Records, La Station Radar, Night People, Twisted Nerve and Staubgold. She utilises electronics and her softly spun vocal to make some of the finest echo-drenched ’60s chamber pop around. Ela’s ability to flip her sound into more panoramic symphonic expanses is deeply uncanny and the perfect counterbalance for her breezy, baroque-flavored moments.
