Gaoler’s Daughter – Cordelia (single)


Following the success of their three previous singles released last year, South London indie-pop/rock quartet Gaoler’s Daughter are gearing up to release debut album, ‘How To Make Time’ (artwork above). The first single comes in the form of “Cordelia”.

“Cordelia” is a fine little indie-pop tune and though it doesn’t break new ground, its melodies and charms are infectious.

Comparison to Phoenix circa ‘Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix’ may be the first thing that springs to mind both musically and vocally however are more accurate comparison would be to the more delicate material from Two Door Cinema Club’s ‘Beacon’  album of last year.

The mood of “Cordelia” is one that is bittersweet with an underlying sense of melancholy running throughout it.

The band were recently played the Fearne Cotton curated Festifeel and were hand-picked as one of 20 acts in a line up which also included Tribes, Gabrielle Aplin, Chloe Howl and The Milk.

With the support of the aforementioned Fearne Cotton, “Cordelia” would be right at home on Radio 1 and it’s probably safe to assume we can expect big things from Gaoler’s Daughter.

The debut album, ‘How To Make Time’, is set for release on 26 August , 2013 while the single, ‘Cordelia’, will be released on 12 August, 2013.
