New artist, Gordi, covers Courtney Barnett’s, “Avant Gardener”

Gordi is the musical moniker of young Australian singer, Sophie Payten. Over the last couple years, Payten has been building her musical repertoire, creating music in her dorm room in Sydney. Now decorated with triple j’s J Award and 2 FBi Radio SMAC Awards, she is part of the Jagjaguwar roster and will be releasing an EP this year.

Before the release of her upcoming EP, she has shared with us her rendition of fellow Australian, Courtney Barnett’s, track “Avant Gardener.” Gordi’s version is heavier, more melodic and simply beautiful. Compare and contrast the two versions yourself:
