Can 5 people play one guitar at the same time?
For those of you who lost the amazing cover of “Somebody That I Used To Know” performed by the Walk off the Earth at the beginning of this year, here we go again:
Walk off the Earth is a Canadian indie band formed in 2006. They have gained their success by making low-budget music videos of covers and originals and have built their fan base independently with no help from record labels, booking agents or management.
This video became rapidly popular on YouTube early this year, gathering over 100 million views in four months and receiving positive responses from both Gotye (author of the original song) and his co-singer on the song, Kimbra.
If you like, you can even buy it at this link on iTunes for 1,29 $: Somebody That I Used To Know by Walk off the Earth
Thanks to this success last February the band signed a recording contract with Columbia Records.
Power of creativity. Better said, power of creativity broadcasted on YouTube.
