“Told myself that you were right for me/ But felt so lonely in your company/But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember”

Pronounced gore-ti-yeah, Gotye is the stage name of Belgian-Austrian Wouter “Wally” De Backer.  Strange as the name may seem, his music manages to be endearing with eclectic influences throughout, from sampling a Luiz Bonfa track “Seville” to a xylophone melody that sticks in your head. As the track progresses it becomes clear that “Somebody That I Used To Know” is a track that the Broken Bells would have loved to call their own, and the revelation later in the track of a counterpoint is a great addition.  Check out the free download below
