Thanks to my Irish cousins, I have been introduced to Gotye. This Belgian-Australian’s singing style immediately reminded me of Peter Gabriel (whom I love) and even his music videos are Gabriel-esque in bizarre artiness. Here’s the original video for his hit single Somebody I Used to Know.
And now here’s a brilliant cover version by the Canadian group Walk off the Earth. Can’t believe there are five people playing one guitar without getting in each other’s way. Pretty impressive and the group’s voices are fantastic…dare I say almost better thatn the original?
