“I’m a sometimes introvert, sometimes extrovert.” - Jiordy
With a genre-bending sensibility characterised by floaty, feel-good melodies, smoky vocals, gritty synths and nostalgic beats, Jiordy's mesmerising brand of music and lyricism offers a piercing insight into her introspective mind.
Cascading onto the scene in early 2020, Jiordy's debut single 'UR Dumb' garnered the praise of notable Australian music publications and radio, including triple j Unearthed, themusic.com and Life Without Andy.
Her second release, 'Hmmm', premiered on triple j with Richard Kingsmill in late July. The track was largely celebrated by Spotify, with inclusions in playlists New Music Friday’s, Pop Edge, Weekends and Friends, and Fresh Finds: Indie and Fresh Finds - which combined, has over 1.2 million listeners.
‘Weight in Water’, Jiordy’s final release for 2020, premiered on Tonedeaf, and was covered by prominent Australian music publications including Purple Sneakers and Musicfeeds. The ephemeral track was added to full rotation on triple j Unearthed for 11 weeks (and counting), and secured airplay on triple J, receiving praise from notable presenters including Declan Byrne, Dave Ruby Howe, Lucy Smith, Claire Mooney, Abby Butler and Pip Rasmussen.
Laying herself bare through storytelling and sound that is evocative, candid, playful and universally relatable, Jiordy is set to continue releasing her signature style of ethereal sound through 2021.
Jiordy’s first release for the year, Vigor, is available on all major streaming platforms now.
"Intimate. That's the word I was looking for."
- Richard Kingsmill, triple j unearthed
"It's crafted with a feather touch and I just want to immerse myself in it. it's casual but full of style, in no rush but doesn't languish for a moment."
- Declan Byrne, triple j unearthed
"It really is a feeling of honesty in this song but also an intimate feel as well. What I love about her voice is that it kind of has that breathy Billie Eilish quality. It makes you feel like you're almost in an embrace with the song. It's really struck me."
- Lucy Smith, Triple J
“We first became aware of melbourne electronic-pop artist Jiordy earlier in the year when she gifted us a stellar debut single ‘UR Dumb’. The latest offering ‘Weight In Water’ is above and beyond what we could have expected to hear in such a short amount of time – blending a UK Garage-style beat and pulsing tempo with a folky-pop dreamy vocal and an unrelenting energy and charisma from the get-go. This is a sparkling and exciting release from an artist that feels on the verge of something impressive and unexpected.”
- Purple Sneakers
“For those on the lookout for a new artist to follow, you can’t really do much wrong with Jiordy. After starting the year with her impressive debut single ‘UR Dumb‘ before following that up with the equally-stunning ‘Hmmm’, it seems like this talented pop-electronica sensation from Melbourne is intent on finishing 2020 on a dreamy high with ‘Weight In Water’. And boy has she succeeded.”
