As one of the new breed of indie-pop names on the scene Andrew Hozier-Byrne, better known as Hozier to you and I, it is inevitable that he is going to take inspiration from previous generations of piano tinkling, string strumming singer songwriters as he continues his assault on the radio airwaves and the top of the indie pop tree. 
 
Pop Music Masterclasses - a must watch
That doesn’t mean that stone cold plagiarism is allowed though Hozier.
 
Chilly Gonzalez usually breaks down huge pop hits in thoroughly impressive fashion (rhythmic displacement on Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’ is particularly noteworthy) and yet, his most recent pop music masterclass calls out Hozier as a stone cold plagiarist.
 
His accusation is both clear, concise, but also hugely detailed; he accuses Hozier of pinching the same chord sequence and slow triple time piano section from Canadian singer songwriter Feist’s hit ‘How Come You Never Go There’ to form the base of his biggest hit ‘Take Me To The Church’.

“Take me to church? Maybe Feist should take him to court…”
