Song Of The Day

Gotye feat. Kimbra – “Somebody That I Used To Know”

Every so often there’s an artist or song that you hear about everywhere you turn, from all sorts of different sources. In my experience, when you finally click the link and check it out for yourself, it’s almost always a letdown. But this is one of those songs that definitely lives up to its hype. The tune has sparse yet captivating instrumentation and lyrics that I think we can all relate to. It’s got a very contemporary feel, but Gotye has a voice that’s reminiscent of Peter Gabriel or Sting…and I think that’s a big part of why his sound appeals to lots of different listeners. This is a gorgeous video too!
