Product description

Product Description

Gotye (pronounced Gaultier - like Jean Paul) is a one-man indie success story, a Beck-style sample magpie and a huge-hearted songwriter. Acting as his own manager, plugger and record label while working in a library by day, Belgium born Gotye has won a plethora of prestigious awards in his adopted home of Australia. Self-releasing `Like Drawing Blood', he has won both the Australian equivalent of the Mercury Music Award (the AMP) and a BRIT Award (the ARIA for Best Male Artist), in 2007.

First single `Hearts A Mess' (2nd June) soars and swells into an orchestral gem. `Coming Back' exhibits the signature Gotye method of conjuring a kind of filmic atmosphere while weaving in his own tale of heartache. Second single `Learnalilgivinanlovin' (11th Aug) weaves brass samples into Gotye's Motown-esque vocal harmonies to super-catchy effect. `Puzzle With A Piece Missing' is all echoed snares, rim shots and reggae horns `The Only Thing I Know' is a melody of stadium-sized proportions. Whilst `Night Drive's evocative balmy Miami percussion links Gotye to all the other creatively minded 80's babies that are delving into their childhood memories of radio pop to reforge a sound for the 00s.

Review

"Belgian-Australian singer-songwriter-sampler coming on like Beck fronting The Avalanches." -- The Guardian

"Gotye (pronounced "Gaultier"), a musical magpie from Australia whose eclectic tastes make Mark Ronson look blinkered..."
-- The Independent
