Gordi – ‘Heaven I Know’

Pensive pop artist, Gordi has shared ‘Heaven I Know’, first new music since her debut EP Clever Disguisewhich came out last year.

Canowindra-born but based in Sydney, the singer/songwriter is back from OS recording travels and a stint in LA where she sat down at the piano in Colombo’s restaurant to press out the new track. Pared back to just a warm piano and Gordi’s passionate voice, the performance of ‘Heaven I Know’ is heart-achingly intimate and moving. The song builds through wistful lyrics about aging and the past to a resounding chorus of uplifting chords and Gordi’s yearning cries of “Heaven I know that we tried”. Compared to the tapestry of guitars, synths and beats in Clever Disguise, this latest offering is bare and vulnerable, making her sensitive songwriting even more poignant.

Next time, Gordi will be performing on home ground when she supports Asgeir in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth in July.
