The first new album from The Basics in several years, and it’s a good ‘un.
They’ve been making use of their time off – Wally became an international star as Gotye, Kris spent 2 years working in Kenya with the Red Cross, and both Tim and Kris ran for parliament in the recent Victorian state election.
Now, mix those experiences together, you have an idea of what’s on the new album. A combination of politically aware rock, both locally focussed 1 with Whatever Happened To The Working Class?, globally focussed with Tunaomba Saidia; and some Gotye-esque pop such as Good Times, Sunshine!.
Anyway, listen to it now below, then go out and buy it.
- Is it too much to call them a modern Midnight Oil? I don’t think so. ↩
