Wally de Backer is Gotye.
Since being back I’ve had one of his songs from his (not yet out) new album on almost constant repeat, in part because of it’s superb production and in part because of the vocals of Kimbra, who features on the track. It’s a little bit of a break-up song, but that doesn’t make it any less enjoyable. Both his and her singing are spot on and the song grows and grows into something rather delightful. It’s got a pretty good video too.
Both ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ and the next song are going to be on the new album, which is due out on August 19th on Eleven: A Music Company. With these two tasters Gotye is creating one hell of a buzz for his newest release.
As a way of giving you a little more of this half Antipodean/half Belgian maestro to listen to, here are a couple of older songs and a remix. Dammit I can’t wait for mid-August!
