Gordi - "Can We Work It Out"

I don't really get a lot of the pop music out nowadays. I honestly can't tell the difference between Katy Perry and Robyn. That might be why I'm so shocked at how much I like this new single from Gordi. The stage name of 22 year old Australian Sophie Payten, "Can We Work It Out" is far more rich and lush than your typical pop song. It's less bubble gum and more dream pop. It's a mixture of old fashioned vocal layering with more organic sounding guitars blending with electronic elements. Although it is rare to find unique pop music, it's a very welcome sound.

Gordi's debut EP, Clever Disguise, is due out on May 13th on Jagjaguwar. You can watch the video for "Can We Works It Out" below, and pre-order the EP on iTunes and Amazon. For more info on Gordi, check out her Bandcamp and Facebook. Her current tour dates are also below.
