GORDI (AU)

Sunday | High School | 6.00pm

Sydney folktronica artist Gordi caused a stir in late 2014 and early 2015 with her luminous indie pop songs “Nothing’s As It Seems,” “Taken Blame” and “Can We Work It Out.” The tracks were picked up by triple j and community radio around the country, and attracted international interest from tastemaker blogs, radio and showcase events, drawing comparisons to Asgeir, Tallest Man on Earth and Angel Olsen.

Gordi has since been nominated for two FBi Radio SMAC Awards, nominated as “Unearthed Artist of the Year” at the J Awards, and was the #1 “Most Played Artist” on triple j Unearthed. Most recently Gordi has toured with Missy Higgins, Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, Asgeir, Julien Baker & Gang Of Youths to name a few. Her latest exquisite debut album ‘Reservoir’ was recorded across multiple continents with a range of world-class producers and musicians. Gordi’s soulful vocals are complemented by crisp, ethereal production across 11 tracks that delve into the ramifications of loss and time.


“Writing music has always been and will remain my therapy, my process and my way of communicating,” she explains. “I don't write songs by someone else's prescription, I write to fill my own need. I get this tightness in my chest, and nothing will make it go away other than trying to write lyrics or sitting down at a piano and playing it, and it’s like a medicine. If I have a good session of that, then that tightness and that weight just totally lifts. It just centers me, and gets the things that are riddled through my mind out on paper. And then I can leave them there.”
