Watch Some Behind the Scenes

 

‘Payten finds beauty anyway, never ignoring her fears, but remembering why the fear is worth braving at all.’ – Pitchfork 

 

‘[Our Two Skins] balances fierce intimacy with expansive ambition… The resulting piece feels like an honest, personal reckoning, where both the artist and listener can join each other on the journey and emerge as better versions of themselves on the other side.’ – Uproxx

 

‘The album’s greatest strength is Gordi’s ability to render intimate details into poetic, evocative lyrics… Gordi stands out from her peers on the strength of her direct, melancholic voice and honest lyricism.’ – Exclaim 

 

‘Payten herself is a magnetic presence’ – The Guardian

 

‘A majestic-sounding thing, Gordi’s commanding, Fender-thrashing performance was one to make all of us at home feel better about the uncertainties we face.’ – Sydney Morning Herald

 

Over the weekend, Gordi and her band also debuted a cover of ‘Wrecking Ball’ by Miley Cyrus as part of triple j’s “Like A Version” series.
