GOTYE | Making Mirrors
Gotye is a Belgian-Australian multi-instrumental musician and singer-songwriter, Wouter De Backer. He’s has three studio albums and one remix album under his belt. His newest record, the 10-song “Making Mirrors” is out now via Samples ‘n’ Seconds Records. “Making Mirrors” is a highly unique record that blends pop melodies, sonic landscapes, and prog rock with adventurous musical structures and intricate musical patterns and textures. Although the single, “Making Mirrors”, may not be representative of Gotye overall sound, it is one of the best songs on the record — coming it at barely over one minute. It’s gives the listener a sense of the artistry to come. The song’s lyrics open like the unveiling of a curtain, both sullen and epic, “Dreamt of a door, it opened to everything …” Note: Lyrics are unofficial. — David D. Robbins Jr.
