Gotye's "Making Mirrors" was more than two and a half years in the making and has been making waves thanks to the stunning, Peter Gabriel-esque, first single "Somebody That I Used To Know," which has been #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the last seven weeks.
"Making Mirrors" has already sold nearly two millions copies globally. The album is pop at its most precise, but also electronic music at its most emotional. The record delves into dub, Detroit-era Motown soul, stadium-size politi-pop, synth-folk and world music on glorious, sprawling, huge-hearted songs. It also reached #1 at Top 40 and #1 at Hot AC and thus sits on top at four radio formats - an historic accomplishment. The music video recently crossed the 200 million mark on YouTube, making it one of the most-viewed clips ever.
