Eyes Wide Open (3:11)

Cover of Making Mirrors

From Making Mirrors and 5 other releases

Eyes Wide Open is the first single from Gotye’s third album, released in early 2011. The Eyes Wide Open Songfacts explains the bassline that underpins this ecologically themed song is made up of samples of Gotye playing The Winton Musical Fence, which is a musical instrument installation consisting of five huge metal strings attached to fence posts, and connected to a wooden resonant chamber. The fence is located in Winton, Queensland and Gotye took the opportunity to record sounds from the unusual instrument on his portable stereo recorder.
