ARTISTS TO WATCH: Candice Gordon

Candice Gordon

Candice Gordon’s vocals will win you over even if not at gunpoint.

Candice Gordon says she’s set to release “Smoking Like the Barrel of a Gun” as an official single on July 9th, but the video’s right here to drive you wild in all its punk-infused glory, below. The song creates its own frenetic energy, propelled by Gordon’s kinetic vocals, which are their own most glorious weapon, getting the blood pumping instantly upon pressing play. The real clincher, however, is “I Haven’t Eaten In Days,” available on her site via Soundcloud, which is a stunning blend of Patti Smith and Roseanne Cash, a slow-burn piece of edgy alt-country you won’t be able to get out of your head. Forget albums, just let this woman keep writing great singles like this, and we’ll be golden! This is the definition of “must follow.”
