Aussie musician Wally ‘Gotye’ De Backer is now a global sensation thanks to one hit record. While his mega-hit wasn’t enough to draw a sell-out crowd (the DWTC venue is huge, after all), it didn’t affect the atmosphere: Wally played a varied set of tracks, primarily from 2006 album Like Drawing Blood, to a backdrop of intriguing illustrated films. Most revellers were clearly drawn by smash hit ‘Somebody That I Used to Know’, but the large Australian contingent in the crowd were better acquainted with the back catalogue. One-hit wonder or not, he proved he’s no one-trick pony, moving seamlessly between vocals and a variety of instrumental performances and even displaying some impressive drumming skills.
