Reservoir has been written by Gordi and co-produced with Tim Anderson (Solange, Banks), Ali Chant (Perfume Genius, PJ Harvey), and Alex Somers (Sigur Rós). It was recorded across five locations in three continents - Wisconsin, Los Angeles, New York City, Reykjavík, and Sydney - and follows last year's Clever Disguise EP. Gordi is the moniker of Sophie Payten, who grew up in the tiny Australian farming town of Canowindra. Her story, which has only truly just begun has already taken Gordi from this remotest of rural outposts to performing alongside her new friends and collaborators Bon Iver on US television, and now clutching this remarkable debut collection of shimmering leftfield pop songs. As an opening statement, Reservoir is a compelling listen that plays fondly with textures and leftfield rhythms, but crucially, at its very heart is melody in abundance.
