Having previously recorded an EP with punk legend and hellraiser Shane MacGowan (“the greatest song never to feature on the Twin Peaks soundtrack” – Hotpress), Candice Gordon is set to release her debut full length album ‘Garden of Beasts’ on the 8th of September 2017 via Proper Octopus Records.
Produced by labelmate A.S. Fanning, and mixed by Ingo Krauss (Swans, Iggy and the Stooges), the album was recorded between 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 strings.
“Garden of Beasts is inspired by moving to Berlin and facing the very dark and heavy history that is visible and inescapable everywhere in the city. It’s an exploration of human nature, the hubris of identity, of dispossession, and the conflict between the allure of savagery and the desperation for salvation from that.” explains Candice.
Candice Gordon grew up by the sea in Dublin, Ireland, and is currently based 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 since the release of her debut singles “Smoking Like the Barrel of a Gun” and “Cannibal Love”.
