Gordi Can We Work it Out
Sophie Payten, better known as the dreamy persona Gordi has had a mammoth 2015. With her hit single -Can We Work it Out' last week named the most-played song on Triple J Unearthed, she was also nominated for -Unearthed Artist of the Year' in the prestigious J Awards as well as FBI SMAC Award nominations for -Next Big Thing' and -Song of the Year'. Gordi is rounding out the year with live shows in Melbourne and Sydney this December with a rebooted live setup. Sydney electronic duo Anatole is on support duties for both shows, with emotive electronic touter Owen Rabbit also on the bill at last week's capacity show in Melbourne, and indie singer songwriter Alex Lahey on the line up in Sydney this week.
Gordi is keeping up momentum with the release of a stunning video for her single -Can We Work It Out'. A slow burn of emotive action, clad with cruising kaleidoscopes, crashing waves, and dimly lit profiles directed by avant-garde videographer Paxi. In a fashion that throws shade at Daft Punk's album launch in Wee Waa, Gordi has shown some love to her hometown of Canowindra (population 2,381) and premiered her gorgeous video on the Canowindra News website.
