Interview: Gotye – The Reflection Of ‘Making Mirrors’ – Part 1
Wally De Backer aka Gotye is only hours away from playing the final show of his current national tour. The recent string of dates come at the end of almost two years of touring behind the award-winning album Making Mirrors. In that time Gotye has transcended from local act to international sensation behind the runaway hit Somebody That I Used to Know.
Waiting to take the stage in front of a packed Sydney Entertainment Centre, the same building where Gotye collected multiple ARIA Awards only weeks ago, De Backer sat down to reflect on life since the release of Making Mirrors.
Part 1 of the interview discusses the changes De Backer would make if he had his time over again with Making Mirrors. Looking back on Gotye’s biggest album to date, De Backer admits there are some songs he would cut from the record. However, De Backer also adds that those very same songs have wound up to be some of the best to perform live.
Although at times perplexed when endeavoring to complete certain songs, De Backer is now far removed from any previous frustrations and able to appreciate lessons learnt and realisations that came to light by persevering with the process.
Friday 14 December – Entertainment Centre, Sydney
