Gotye Making Eyes Wide Open

Nice film about how this song came to be      06/03/13

Gotye are an unusual band  - with the phenomenal success of "Somebody" and the recent Grammy sweep, you might expect them to be more of a "product" with marketing strategy and stuff, but it still looks like they have retained their human aspect. Their recordings are interesting and have unusual instrumentation - which is a refreshing change from the general formulaic approve to much chart music.

In this short film about the making of the track  Eyes Wide Open (#22 US alternative music chart 2010) - Gotye explains how it came about. As well as the physical process, he talks about the sentiment behind it and the songwriting process.
