Heaven I Know, Gordi’s Beautiful and Powerful New Single Just Released

Oh my God! For all Gordi’s fans, you must be feel so overwhelm when you hear this news. Yes! Gordi finally released her brand new single called Heaven I Know. This song actually already released since June 12th 2017, but how can I not know about this before. So sorry for the late news. 😦

Honestly, I’m so speechless and I think I almost cry when the first time I hear Heaven I Know. I don’t know how to describe about how awesome this song, but this is so beautiful. Gordi definitely a musical genius. The combination from all elements in this song makes everything so perfect to hear. From the repeated whispered rhythm at the beginning then Gordi’s beautiful voice with piano chords and a simple bytes, the electronic sounds, trumpet, the looping, and the sound layers at the end of the song. The lyrics also makes me speechless. Somehow, the way Gordi sing this song makes people understand how she feels towards the lyrics in this song.

I just read about the review of Heaven I Know in Atwood Magazine website. This article is so touching, beautiful, and makes me more understand about this song. The writer wrote about Heaven I Know is as much about dealing with loss as it is about growing older and accepting adulthood’s compromises and the challenges you can’t win. Gordi also said, “With a friendship, you almost throw more at it than you would a romantic partner, because when a friendship breaks it’s so much more heart-breaking”.

Yes, it is something different when you have to lose someone who really important for you, who really understand you more than you do, who made you a better person, or someone who already become your own sanctuary. That kind of relationship has more powerful connections than romantic relationship, but one thing that we can not prevent is time. As the time goes by, as we grow older, we will face so many things that might prevent us to have direct communication with our closest friend. Maybe they got a boyfriend, got engaged, get married, move to another place, have a children, got a new job, and suddenly you lose them because you are no longer their priority. Somehow, I know we can’t prevent all the adulthood things because everybody grows up someday, but I’m sure no one wants to lose their closest friend. That is the struggle that we have to face in the future when we’re adult. But I wish I can keep my closest friend forever and always make them as my priority. Good luck to all of you out there who fight for your closest one because you know it is worthy to fight for. Heaven I Know That We Tried, right? 🙂

Oh my! I think I already talk to much. But, I can’t wait to hear Gordi’s debut album Reservoir which will released in August 25th 2017. So excited! For now, why don’t you try to hear Gordi’s beautiful and powerful new song, Heaven I Know. Just press the Spotify button below and share your thoughts and opinion towards this song.

Secrets by Mary Lambert

Once again, thanks to Shannon Beveridge who already made me discover this great song. Well, maybe I was too late to know about Mary Lambert, but I admit this song is really catchy. Secrets actually was released since August 2014. Lambert collaborate with one of my favorite songwriter, Mozella, and producer, Eric Rosse and Benny Cassete, to produce this song.

Secrets is a pop song with a little bit elements of hip hop. I totally love the melodies and the tunes of piano in this song. It is so catchy, singable, and dance-able. Somehow, Secrets is a great song to sing with your friends while you’re driving or having a road trip. This song already become my morning jam for the last two weeks. Definitely so good, so entertained, and can boost your mood in the morning. Secrets also has a great and powerful lyrics about the Mary Lambert’s confession for every problem that she already went through.
