Jordan White's Braille Face project is defined by a restless pursuit of the creative process, and is as emotionally affecting as it is sonically adventurous. His debut album Kōya, released in mid-2016, was the culmination of a personal project which saw him privately write and release twelve albums over a twelve month period.
Since signing with local Melbourne label Spirit Level (run by triple j broadcaster Tim Shiel and Wally de Backer aka Gotye), Braille Face has established himself as one of Melbourne's most exciting new voices. His album has drawn support from triple j, Double J, Australian community radio, BBC 6 Music, Radio X, The Quietus, The 405, THUMP, Rolling Stone AU and recently exceeded 1 million total streams on Spotify.
Showcasing the combination of lyrical vulnerability and sonic experimentation that has become his signature, Run For Your Life is the perfect re-introduction to Braille Face’s vibrant and emotionally resonant world.
“I wrote this song after purchasing a beautiful old upright piano for $200 off Gumtree,” says White. “It was all out of tune after the move, but the micro-tones it was producing helped inform the song.”
“My friend Pat and I picked it up from an older mother in Coburg after work one night and we shuffled it into his wagon. She thought her kids would learn to play it. But they never did.”
