Somebody That I Used to Know (feat. Stephanie Graham)
It's an honor for someone to cover another artist's music and Xiren's cover of Gotye's "Somebody I used to Know" is really good. I recommend who buy this song. You can compare it but remember this is a tribute, it's not meant to be better than the original song! Thumbs up!
It took me 4 ever to find a good rock version of this song, this is what I was looking for!
One of the select few to have music featured in a Volkswagen commercial, Xiren -- a name derived from Greek mythology and Celtic lore -- is both the name of the pop/rock band and its frontman. Hailing from Denver, CO, singer/guitarist Xiren had been a musician for years, playing with Detroit-based bands Painted Glass and Bourbon St. In the early 2000s, Xiren released a handful of recordings that include Xiren (2000), Bullets & Rainbows (2001), and Polite Conversation (2002). The latter found a more organic approach than the previous electronic-aided tracks and features several collaborators. As of mid-2007, the evolving band -- which has had up to seven members -- was a duo of Xiren and drummer Mike Rice, with computer assistance for touring. Since 2000, Ben Jansen has served as Xiren's frequent co-writer and co-producer. ~ Kenyon Hopkin
