Candice Gordon released her debut album ‘Garden of Beasts’ in September 2017 on Proper Octopus Records.
On her debut record, Berlin based Irish artist Candice Gordon combines elements of gothic neo-folk, garage, and post-punk with esoteric themes. From her previously released EP, produced by the legendary punk icon Shane MacGowan, the title track was described as “the greatest song never to feature on the Twin Peaks soundtrack” by the definitive Irish music magazine Hotpress. Previous to that she released two garage singles “Smoking Like the Barrel of a Gun” and “Cannibal Love” receiving press from the likes of the Guardian, Daily Mirror, Nylon as well airplay on such stations as BBC Radio 1 and XFM.
In spring 2018 she released the garage-rock single ‘The Kids are Alt-Right’ followed by tours in Italy and Germany. She plays Torstrassenfest and Reeperbahn in 2018 amongst others.
