This is already a big song: as the number of views on YouTube and its presence in the Top 40 and on the Radio 1 A List attest. So sorry this post is a bit late. However, Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know feels so different from most things in the chart at the moment. With the popularity of bands like Chairlift and Friends, and the unstoppable rise of Lana Del Rey, is this the start of something big for an almost undefinable, subtle, grown-up electropop?
