Gotye. Haunting song, inventive clip.

Gotye was born in Belgium and grew up in Australia.

That doesn’t explain this song, however. It comes from some entirely different territory.

Just when a cranky old bastard like myself thinks he can write off all modern music as garbage, something like this comes along to make me eat my words.

 

UPDATE – Well well well… I might have bridged the generation gap.

  1. I like this. A lot. Parts of the song (and the video) remind me quite a bit of old-school Peter Gabriel, which is never a bad thing.

    • The Sledgehammer clip?

      • Most definitely. His voice is very Peter Gabrielish in places. I really, really like this.

        • Reminds me more of Sting – although I didn’t make the connection until someone pointed it out.

          • Posting this on scs now. And I also want to listen to more of Kimbra’s music, too…
