Gordi Shares New Single ‘On My Side’ (Video)

gordi on my side

Sydney’s Gordi has unveiled her new single, ‘On My Side.’ This is the second song from her forthcoming debut album, Reservoir, which is due August 25th on Jagjaguwar. The track is accompanied by a beautiful, cinematic video filmed at the Salton Sea in the Californian desert during Gordi’s recent U.S. tour last month. Expanding on the previous clip for “Heaven I Know,” the “On My Side” video features an impassioned performance from Gordi herself. Much like the song, the video is pensive and full of passion. Watch it below.

‘On My Side’ was written by Gordi, a.k.a. Sophie Payten, a 24 year-old medical student hailing from the rural Australian farming community of Canowindra. The song was co-produced by Tim Anderson (Solange/Banks) and Payten. Recorded over several months, the track’s inception began in Los Angeles, was fleshed out with Gordi’s team at home in Sydney and finished at April Base in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. ‘On My Side’ was mixed by Francois Tetaz. Gordi explains, “I wrote ‘On My Side’ about being incapable of telling someone that I needed them, ‘sending my words silently’ through lyrics instead. I wanted the video to represent not only the message of this song, but the album in its entirety. This idea of guiding someone through your ‘reservoir’ – your inner most place. I don’t think you can tell someone how to get there, you have to take them to that place yourself.”
