[BUZZ] Gotye

Wouter De Backer, otherwise known as his stage persona Gotye, is a Belgian multi-instrumentalist based in Melbourne.  Somebody That I Used To Know is the second single released off the upcoming album Making Mirrors due for release August 19. The song harkens back to the vocal stylings of a young Sting of The Police. The song features New Zealand singer/songwriter Kimbra. The above film for the song was directed by Natasha Pincus. The music video also features body art by Emma Hack - which took 23 hours to shoot the stop-motion animation. With the album launch Gotye will perform at the Sydney Opera House as part of the Graphic Festival–which will feature animators and a 10-piece orchestra as part of his performance. www.gotye.com
