Gordi releases her striking new album Our Two Skins today. 

Our Two Skins is the follow-up to 2017's Reservoir and was recorded in Gordi's hometown of Canowindra on her family's farm with Chris Messina (Bon Iver, Bruce Hornsby, Big Red Machine) and Zach Hanson (Bon Iver, Hand Habits, Waxahatchee, Tallest Man).

"On her second effort Our Two Skins, Gordi, AKA Sydney's Sophie Payten, strips back the layers of glitch and experimentation for a decidedly more focused record.

"Opening song proper Aeroplane Bathroom makes clear that this is going to be a vulnerable journey - she does warn us after all that she 'can’t get my shit together' and the 'contents of her chest are down there on the floor'...

"Our Two Skins sharpens Gordi's musical pallet, resulting in a ten-song story of love, acceptance and self-discovery."
