Easy Way Out is the latest single to be released by Gotye from the acclaimed album "Making Mirrors".
Last night, Gotye reclaimed the #1 position on the UK singles chart with 'Somebody That I Used To Know'. It is now certified Gold in the U.S, where Making Mirrors has sold in excess of 100,000 copies. Check out the video for "Easy Way Out". The video's director Darcy Prendergast had this to say about the intent when creating the video, this commentary if nothing else will make you want to hit play below.
"We completely disregarded 'good business sense' and created a piece of art that would hopefully leave the viewer's cerebral cortex sliding down the computer screen. From a visual perspective, we wanted to bombard our audience with magic. I'm a huge believer of in-camera trickery and have always been an avid fan of stop motion but those skills fused with those of our resident VFX wizard, Andrew Goldsmith, enabled us to create some pretty astonishing but deliberately understated animation".
