A NYC band that deserves more attention: Elysian Fields work on new album

A NYC band that deserves more attention: Elysian Fields work on new album

In our restless quest for the best possible artists to book for our upcoming CMJ shows, we stumbled upon NYC based duo Elysian Fields, who have been around for a while (1995!) and lately have been busy working on a new album - and also on opening a new venue! On their website's "news" page we noticed this 2014 video for single "Channeling" - which we somehow missed at the time - and instantly fell in love with it. Directed by visionary illustrator/cartoonist Steven Mertens, this is a psych pop gem with imaginative, top notch production and a subtle but also moving alternation of tension and release moments. Lead singer Jennifer Charles' incredibly seductive vocals are supported by melodies that are catchy and edgy at once. This is what we call a great song - and it made our week.
