Where is our “In Your Eyes”? Our “Come Talk To Me”? Where is our song to blast as we passionately raise the boombox over our head outside our beloved’s window? Let us offer the music of Gordi — 23 year old Canowindra-born Sophie Payten — to satiate this need. It’s music that gets it both ways — ambitious big pop that doesn’t give an inch of artistic concession. Here, wistful aching and longing can almost feel like a spirited celebration. It’s expansive and elegant, like those she has recently shared stages with, including Bon Iver, The Tallest Man On Earth, Of Monsters And Men and more. The songs on the Sydney-based artist’s debut EP Clever Disguise, are the culmination Gordi’s prolific songwriting and innovative production. Gordi’s sonic journeys take us places in our memories and imaginations that belie her 22 years.
