High Moon Low Sun

by Ela Orleans

Vintage-pop samples recycled into haunting sound assemblages. Melancholic and the joyful, like the first kiss from a new lover at a rain swept funeral. These are polysemous confections of subtlety and incongruent beauty.

Album Notes
Ela Orleans is a Polish musician now based in Brooklyn, having arrived there by way of Glasgow. She is 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 the theatre. This is her first solo album and it reflects the diversity of her collaborations and the places she has called home. Haunted by all the best musical ghosts, "High Moon Low Sun" paradoxically and simultaneously merges the melancholic and the joyful like the first kiss from a new lover at a rain swept funeral. This complicated loveliness has Polish fuzz blues casually mingle with the jaunty but melancholy deep-sea organ and liquid rhythm of drip-hop, and flirts charmingly with elegant European doo wop. A slow buzz, eerie rattle and violin pluck mournful reveries. Surf guitar for the ripples on the stillest, pellucid sun-dappled ponds. 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. These are polysemous confections which make you feel that you are listening to pop music for the first time again". (by Barry Burns for "Setola di Maiale"). "Polish artist Ela Orleans views the world of song through a cracked lens, recycling vintage-pop samples into haunting sound assemblages..." (Time Out NY). "
