Gordi 'Clever Disguise EP'
Where is this generation's "In Your Eyes"? Our "Come Talk To Me"? You know, that song to blast as we passionately, earnestly raise the boombox high over our heads outside our beloved's window at twilight. It's been a while since...
Where is this generation's "In Your Eyes"? Our "Come Talk To Me"? You know, that song to blast as we passionately, earnestly raise the boombox high over our heads outside our beloved's window at twilight. It's been a while since we had one of those songs -- something expansive and elegant; big-pop that feels personal and tender. Let us humbly offer the music of Sydney's Gordi -- 22-year-old Sophie Payten. Her debut EP, Clever Disguise, gets at it both ways -- massive and personal music that doesn't concede an inch of artistic vision. Raised in the small, farming community of Canowindra in New South Wales, amongst a minuscule population of 2381, Payten learned to play piano and guitar in her house -- with Billy Joel on near-constant rotation. She left the rural life in her late-teens to pursue a medical education in Sydney. The dichotomy of those environments -- the pastoral and the modern -- is surely a guiding influence in Gordi's music. Earthy, wistful folk songs are cloaked in delicate-but-bold electronic production. And what an effortlessly flooring voice to carry it all, at once fractured and brimming with richness. These are songs you could hear bouncing through the alleyways of the city as much as you could hear them rolling across the fields. - Jagjaguwar

Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.
If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.
Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.
