Last yeah Irish singer/songwriter Hozier became an unexpected hit when his track; “Take Me To Church” reached second spot in the UK charts a year after its initial release. And, his success and recognition has continued to rise since he released his self titled debut album last year.
However, the means to his success have been put into question when Canadian musician; Chilly Gonzales posted a YouTube video which makes the accusation that “Take Me To Church” has major similarities to “How Come You Never Go There” a track from Feist’s 2011 record “Metals.”
Re-creating both tracks on piano, Gonzales states that “It’s almost the exact same thing” before making the suggestion that “Feist should take him to court”.
