Following the gr8 news that Gordi has confirmed her debut album is Reservoir is incoming, the Young Sydney-via-Canowindra pensive-pop artist has revealed a stirring new video for lead her track ‘Heaven I Know’.
Featuring images on the wall from English photographer Eadweard Muybridge, acclaimed for documenting motion and gravity, the James Soldan-directed video represents Gordi’s struggle with both. “The video communicates simply the tragedy of growing apart. There are elements and forces that will wedge themselves between two people – people that have known each other deeply, only to eventually bend and break. No matter your struggle, sometimes the storm is inevitable,” explains Gordi.
The single itself is a standout featuring a soft vocal beat count that leads a stunning tapestry of shiny brass, pared-back keys and the slightest percussion with a melody that soars into implosion. Her debut album Reservoir, promises to be a collection of cinematic, leftfield-pop songs were written solely by Gordi and co-produced alongside Tim Anderson (Solange/Banks), Ali Chant (Perfume Genius/PJ Harvey) and Alex Somers (Sigur Ros). It was recorded in Wisconsin, Reykjavik, Los Angeles, New York, and Sydney.
To celebrate, Gordi has locked-in two intimate homecoming shows in Sydney at the Giant Dwarf Theatre, Thursday, 6 July and Thousand Pound Bend in Melbourne on Friday 7, July ahead of her local support for Icelandic singer-songwriter, Asgeir.
