Ela Orleans

Upper Hell

HB Recordings

Released: 5th February 2021



Though we've never made a secret of our love for Ela Orleans, we were genuinely bowled over by her new record when she dropped it in. Upper Hell is the apex of a career which has taken in cinematic orchestration, electronic experimentation, heartbroken songwriting and, above all, Orleans' plaintive and affecting vocal performance. Upper Hell is Orleans' vision in clear, panoramic scope, a remarkable achievement that sums up Orleans' career to date while pointing to exciting new directions for this most inspiring of artists.
