Indie rock act Gotye had long been a buzz-heavy artist in his home down under. But in 2012 his stock rose in America and abroad. A few high profile appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Saturday Night Live exposed Gotye to a wider audience as his single “Easy Way Out" was even performed on the Fox hit Glee. The publicity helped immensely as the atmospheric vocalist enjoyed his first US no. 1 single.
