told myself that you were right for me, but felt so lonely in your company, but that was love and it’s an ache i still remember
Taking a big momentum shift from last year’s list-topping “Eyes Wide Open,” Australia’s Gotye has returned with a song that hops and shuffles with delicate elegance. It took a few listens for me to really stop and listen (if you know what I mean) but once I did the whole thing took my breath right out of my lungs. Gotye’s vocals and lyrics are spot on as they wring every drop of sorrow from his broken relationship. When Kimbra comes in for the counter-point the whole things crystallizes into something truly magical. I highly recommend the video below for a visual take on the fractured love story. And for a glimpse of what one YouTube user accurately called Kimbra’s “amazing side-lip.” Stunning. All of it.
