Gordi Announces New Single ‘Nothing’s As It Seems’ – Across The Ocean

Gordi Announces New Single ‘Nothing’s As It Seems’

Sydney, Australia – Singer-songwriter GORDI is proud to announce her new single “Nothing’s As It Seems” (October 2, Independent) and subsequent NSW launch shows.


Nothing’s As It Seems” is an upbeat and playfully earnest track tamed by a hushed, wintery contour, recorded in Melbourne with producer Benjamin McCarthy (Megan Washington, Kate Miller-Heidke) and the first taste of new music from Gordi since the 2013 Away EP.

Growing up on a farm in Regional NSW, Gordi is now a bone fide Sydney resident, writing music while squeezing in medicine studies at uni. Surviving on a diverse musical diet including classic folk icons like Carole King, Paul Kelly and Joni Mitchell and their modern counterparts in The Tallest Man on Earth, Ásgeir and Laura Marling, the candour in Gordi’s music and vocal texture is at once fractured and brimming with richness, leaving “Nothing’s As It Seems” an effortlessly memorable tune, as much for the hooky melody as it is for its distinctive musical feel.

No stranger to the live circuit, Gordi has previously supported the likes of Dustin Tebbutt, Saskwatch and more, including a sold-out Away EP Launch in November last year.

As Gordi (pronounced with a hard ‘G’, for clarity’s sake) looks towards the tail end of 2014 and her next EP (planned for an early 2015 release), she will be performing a string of shows in support of “Nothing’s As It Seems” including the Official Single Launch at Goodgod Small Club on Wednesday October 22nd and support slots for Steve Smyth and Husky.

“Nothing’s As It Seems” is released independently on Thursday October 2nd 2014.

Thursday September 26th – Brass Monkey, Cronulla (supporting Steve Smyth)
Thursday October 2nd – Spring St Social, Bondi Junction
Wednesday October 22nd – Goodgod Small Club, Sydney **OFFICIAL SINGLE LAUNCH
Friday October 24th – Station Bar, Katoomba
Saturday October 25th – Sydney Craft Beer Week, Carriageworks
Sunday October 26th – Sydney Craft Beer Week, Carriageworks (supporting Husky)
