Biography

Elysian Fields have always travelled 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. The duo formed in 1995 and have been making discs ever since. More information (like live dates) is often found on their website - http://www.elysianmusic.com.

    Lyrics
    Lady in the lake
    Used to go skinny dipping
    Trapping love in a lake
    Wading slowly
    Gripping sun with a rake
