Gotye : Save Me

The third single from Making Mirrors is a dense expanse of orchestral pop that again evokes Peter Gabriel, what with the sharp counter-rhythmic beats and the vaguely tribal rushes of vocal melody. There’s a huge amount of craft in the song, especially when you consider how he put this album together, but personally I find the music overwhelms his voice. When it comes to Gotye, Wally De Backer’s voice is pretty much all I want to hear.
