He formed Downstares, his first band, in high school itself. After the group gained recognition across Melbourne, his songwriting skills were praised as well. Post-graduation, the members of Downstares went different ways but Gotye continued to make music on his own. After promoting himself in the college circuit, he got the opportunity to perform on different independent radio stations. During this time, he also collaborated with fellow musician Kris Schroeder and started another venture called The Basics.

In 2003, he was finally offered a distribution deal and since then he has become quite a rage in the international music industry. He received several ARIA awards in Australia and his song 'Somebody That I Used to Know’ reached the number one slot on multiple music charts across the world. He eventually planned on attending different summer music festivals and make appearances on television as well.
