Gordi has just released a new song titled “Volcanic” which is off her forthcoming album “Our Two Skins”.
“Volcanic” arrives after previous tracks “Aeroplane Bathroom” and “Sandwiches”, and is accompanied by news that her sophomore LP is being delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Sophie Payten, aka Gordi, says of her latest outing, “It speaks to a rush of anxiety – about why, about what is real and what is not, about the drama of it, about the vortex of it. When it surges you can feel paralysed and out of control at the same time – ‘shut down’ and ‘manic.’ Its self-destructive nature can be so crippling.
I wanted the song to feel like a wave of anxiety. The tempo never changes but the piano solo starts at half-time and rushes until it is double the speed, though the beat never changes. And then suddenly; it’s over.”
