(Morphine Records, Beograd / Berlin)
Gordan is the stellar collaboration of the Berlin-based duo of drummer Andi Stecher and multi-instrumentalist Guido Moebius (otherwise collectively known as GAMS) with Serbia's singer and ethnomusicologist extraordinaire Svetlana Spajic.
Together, the trio mixes heavy drones and apocalyptic post-punk beats with ancient folklore from the Balkans to create stunning, delirious and sometimes even psychedelic soundscapes. Initially conceived as a studio project during the days of the first COVID lockdowns, Gordan's debut "Down In The Meadow" directly reflects the feeling of alien- and isolation prevailing then.
Since then, they have involved into a breathtaking live band, playing major and influential festivals like Roskilde, Serbia's Ring Ring or Clandestino in Göteborg.
In spring 2023, Rabih Beaini will release Gordan's second album on Morphine Records.
