Behind the Scenes ACL Video: Gotye
Wouter DeBacker’s performance is one of the most eagerly awaited of ACL Fest weekend. What? Oh– then perhaps you know of him simply as ‘Gotye’: the guy with one of the year’s biggest singles. “Somebody That I Used to Know” may have reached #1 on the Billboard Top 100, yet the Belgian-born singer-songwriter has managed to maintain much of his indie-rock cred thanks to a depth of repertoire and an attention to songcraft that’s drawn critical comparisons to Sting and Peter Gabriel. KUT’s Jeff McCord talked with Gotye backstage at ACL Fest.
