Candice Gordon releases single “Nobody”

Having previously recorded an EP with punk legend and hellraiser Shane MacGowan , Candice Gordon is set to release her debut full length album ‘Garden of Beasts’ on the 8th of September 2017 via Proper Octopus Records . Today, 14th July sees the release of the flagship single ‘Nobody’.

Produced by labelmate A.S. Fanning , and mixed by Ingo Krauss ( Swans, Iggy and the Stooges ), the album was recorded in a country house in Ireland and at the legendary Funkhaus in Berlin. It presents a rich and brooding sonic landscape constructed using a variety of synthetic and natural instruments from Moogs to flutes, and Gordon even plays a one-string Kazakh instrument at times.

In her own words, Gordon describes the single ‘Nobody’: “Nobody is about bodily autonomy, dispossession, and dehumanisation. It’s an image of hedonistic youth culture that is preoccupied with consumption even to the extent of consuming other people and presenting oneself to be consumed. To have the sense that you are nobody, you have been totally dehumanised.

Candice Gordon grew up in Dublin, Ireland and after some years pursuing a nomadic lifestyle, is now settled in Berlin. She has previously performed at Bestival , Body and Soul , Electric Picnic and Truck Festival , and supported and shared stages with the likes of Shane MacGowan, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds , The Horrors, and Kurt Vile and the Violators . She has toured extensively in Europe and the UK over the last few years and since the release of her debut singles “Smoking Like the Barrel of a Gun” and “Cannibal Love”.
