Dominating Billboards charts, Gotye’s single “Somebody That I Used to Know”, featuring Kimbra has become a summertime sensation! It’s hard to go a day without hearing it on the radio and having that viral tune stuck in your head. While the catchy single was released over a year ago, recent buzz has put these artists back on the map. Belgian/Australian alternative rocker Gotye is responsible for writing the searing breakup ballad, featuring New Zealand singer/songwriter Kimbra. The single, which has sold nearly 4.5 million copies worldwide, was the soundtrack of the Etro Fashion Show (held at the St. Regis Atlanta to support Atlanta Children’s Hospital). This fresh and original vocal duo sounds is sure to pave way for other artists to follow. Give them a listen, if you haven’t already.
