Bibio feat. Gotye: The Way You Talk
on 09 March 2016
Marking Bibio's first collaboration release, "The Way You Talk" is an unusual kind of heart-wrenching pop ballad from the traditionally instrumental-focused electronic music producer. Gotye smoothly sings, "But there's something about the way you talk" into a haze of echoes (the two first met when Gotye requested that Bibio remix "Somebody That I Used To Know") as Bibio layers a modified Hohner D6 Clavinet, Moog synth and "Twin Peaks-esque baritone guitar" to create a beautiful counterpoint to the vocals.
The track almost ends too soon, akin to the remnants of a fading memory. It will be on A Mineral Love, Bibio's eighth album out 1 April 2016 on Warp Records; he's described its nature as "traveling through time."
