About Elysian Fields
Elysian Fields have always traveled in mysterious waters. Led by the enigmatic New York co-composers Jennifer Charles (vocals) and Oren Bloedow (guitar), the music born of their collaboration is not easy to categorize. They carry a torch for nature, sex, love, the cycle of death and rebirth, and the sounds of folk and jazz ballads, no wave and classical music, seamlessly interwoven into a style that is at once languorously romantic and tough. Their music might be described as alternative or dream pop; with the husky and sultry vocals of Charles and the filmic qualities of Bloedow’s guitar work they have also been associated with the genre of rock noir or indie rock.
