A nervous breakdown, an identity struggle, the help of friends Chris Messina (Bon Iver) and Zach Hanson (Waxahatchee, Tallest Man), and a nostalgic home visit to Canowindra has lead to the creation of the most lauded album to come from Gordi yet, Our Two Skins.

The triple j feature record is an ode to a tumultuous period in Sophie Payten’s life. Recorded with Messina and Hanson in the remote town where her family history dates back to over 100 years, Our Two Skins captures a previous internal state but mirrors much of the world’s reality.

Check out Our Two Skins by Gordi:

It’s been a couple of years since we last heard from Gordi, but after a raft of singles coming our way, Our Two Skins has proved that the wait was more than worth it. Teaming up with Bon Iver producers Chris Messina and Zach Hanson at her family’s farm in Canowindra, Our Two Skins sees Gordi at her best, having crafted an album that is easily her best yet.
– Zadie Collins

From the opening of Our Two Skins, Gordi’s first album since 2017’s Reservoir, it’s clear that you’re in for something special. From the heartbreaking tenderness of ‘Aeroplane Bathroom’ to the soulful exuberance of songs like ‘Unready’, Sophie Payten showcases her undeniable versatility in what might just be one of the year’s most accomplished and intoxicating records.
– Tyler Jenke
