Gordi Button Factory Dublin

Info: Sydney indietronica act Gordi returned to Dublin last night at The Button Factory following her very warmly received main stage appearance at Forbidden Fruit Festival earlier in the summer. Real name Sophie Payten, Gordi played the final night of her European tour promoting debut album Reservoir (listen below) which was released in August. The setting was intimate, with local Dublin act EllyD opening for the Australian as the venue began to fill up. As is always the case at the end of any tour (she will now be embarking on the US leg straight away), you could tell Gordi was feeling the fatigue slightly as she humorously interacted with the crowd between songs, however, this had no impact on her energetic live show whatsoever. 

A personal favourite, and possibly best loved single of Irish fans from the album, 'Heaven I Know' got the full Gordi treatment, and you could hear a pin drop during the songs quiet opening. The night seemed to be in fast-forward which took even the artist by surprise as she reached the close of her set, 50 minutes that just completely zipped by, but it was so enjoyable to witness her and her band at closer quarters than the last time she performed in Dublin and we eagerly await her return to these shores again in the future.
