Who? What? Why? Where? How?
Last.fm wiki say:
Gotye is 25-year-old Wally De Backer. He plays drums, percussion and piano, and he writes, sings and produces tracks at his home, currently in Oakleigh, Victoria, Australia. Gotye’s sound is a melting pot of samples from sources far and wide, mixed with Wally’s vocals and home recorded sounds to form original songs that are as likely to channel ’80s New Romantic pop or ’60s Motown soul as they are to be experiments in kooky turntablism or progressive trip-hop landscapes. The results are songs that both reference and incorporate styles and sounds of the past, but bear a distinctly contemporary outlook.
Which is all distinctly wanky, but the track is completely ace. Imagine if Coldplay were hip and surrounded themselves in lush samples. And then immediatly scrub that from your mind and just download the track, goddammit.
