Following a string of much-talked about performances overseas, Gordi marks her return to local shores with the announcement of east coast tour dates for Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney this August. She also shares the stunning video for single ‘Wanting’.

‘Wanting’ was directed by talented Melbourne based director Nicholas Carlton and premiered by local site Fasterlouder. The song has been a regular on alternative radio locally for the past couple of months, taken from Gordi’s debut EP Clever Disguise, which reached #2 in the iTunes Alternative Chart.

“‘Wanting" is about wanting more from yourself. The song deals with the disappointment of constantly ending up at the same place, despite feeling like you should have come so much further. The film clip echoes this idea in that a young girl is looking at what she hopes is not her own reflection, because though it's years in the future, she's in exactly the same place once again.” – Sophie Payten aka Gordi

Gordi has spent the better part of the last month wooing international audiences throughout the UK and US – performing at The Great Escape and Sasquatch Festivals, supporting Norwegian indie-popstars Highasakite and also headlining her own tour dates from San Francisco to New York. She can now count Bon Iver and Troye Sivan as her newest fans, with both musicians singing her praises to the masses on social media following the recent trip.

Brand new label mate that is really crushing music: G-O-R-D-I – Bon Iver

I sound like a broken record but Gordi’s EP is so so special. Do urself a favour n give it a listen – like I just had a legit tears in eyes moment to it. – Troye Sivan

Gordi was also recently announced as one of six recipients of an APRA/ PPCA grant, winning a $15,000 sum to use on the continued pursuit of her art.
