I know he's been talked about around the site, but I couldn't find a thread for him anywhere.
An indie act from Australia, his real name is Wouter De Backer and his music is pretty eclectic IMO. He's mostly indie rock, but uses electronic elements in some of his songs, and you might catch a little world music feel here and there.
You should check him out now!
From the album Boardface (2003)
From the album Like Drawing Blood (2006)

Somebody that I used to know is an overrated song, it's not bad, just overplayed as someone said above. The album is great though!

Gotye is an Australian artist who's popularlity has exploded since the release of the song Somebody That I Used To Know, which has 99 million views on Youtube.
" Belgian born Wally De Backer is Gotye. He has adopted Australia as his home and it's certainly not unlike us Aussies to claim him for ourselves! An incredible artist, he has the ability to play many musical instruments to an extraordinary level while mixing and producing his own music at home.
With the combination of his music and talented vocal ability, the results are songs that reflect styles and sounds of the past, but demonstrate a distinctly contemporary outlook.
Since his teenage years in Australia, Gotye has been playing music for good sized crowds, often in underage gigs around Melbourne. As he developed his musical talent, this alternative artist started to gain popularity through radio station Triple J. His first single Learnalilgivinanlovin was released in August 2006. Since then he's never looked back. ''
Taken From the album ''Boardface'' (2008)
I absolutely love him and think he brings real musical talent into his work. This is real pop. Here are some more of his songs for you to check out.
This video made me cry, as much as I tried not too.

Checking out Making Mirrors due to the reputation it's gained, I was very happy with what I got. Quite weird and out there but also innovative and eclectic. And also a perfect piece of "indie" tinged pop in Somebody I Used to Know.
