Similarities shown between Irish singer's single and Feist's 'How Come You Never Go There'
The Canadian musician regularly posts music lessons to YouTube in which he deconstructs popular songs on piano.
Gonzales’ new video looks at the Irish singer’s 2013 breakthrough hit, which he compares to Feist’s ‘How Come You Never Go There’, the lead single from her 2011 album ‘Metals’.
“This sounds quite familiar to me, I must say,” Gonzales says of ‘Take Me To Church’. “This very slow and noble triple time and those sad chords. I think I know what it might be.”
Proceeding to play the Feist song, he adds, “It’s almost the exact same thing. That’s a crazy coincidence that my good friend and musical little sister Feist with her song ‘How Come You Never Go There’ had the exact same idea to use those chords and that slow triple time as Hozier. What are the chances?”
Continuing, “I’m being told by the research staff that Feist’s track came out well over a year before Hozier’s. Doesn’t look so good does it? ‘Take Me To Church’? Maybe Feist should take him to court”. Watch Gonzales’ video below.
