Interview: Gotye – The Reflection Of ‘Making Mirrors’ – Part 2
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 2 touches on De Backer’s desire to pursue pieces of music that he feels passionate about. However, that passion is not necessarily a consistent connection and leaves De Barker fascinated by how wildly his feelings can change.
Cutting through the confusion and attempting to surprise his fanbase, De Backer searched for the balance between internal motivation and external expectation. Now the breakthrough of Making Mirrors will ease the pursuit of artistic expression in the future.
