Gordi, the moniker of singer-songwriter Sophie Payten, has shared her new song ‘Inhuman’, the title track to her forthcoming EP. Check out a video for it below.
The new song was inspired by Payten’s experience as a healthcare worker. “When I wrote ‘Inhuman’, I was thinking about the blackened roadsides on my drive from Sydney to Lismore in 2019,” she explained in a statement. “I had to turn back halfway because the fires were too out of control. I was supposed to start work in Lismore Hospital on the Monday, where I would meet countless patients who couldn’t be discharged because their homes had been destroyed. Hearing one story after the next made me numb, and being numb to that sort of tragedy feels like forgetting to be human.”
