Getting Down to The Basics

With Gotye solo artist Willy De Backer behind the drums for The Basics, this Australian outfit plays some 60s and 70s derivative music that will remind you of UK favorites Razorlight, but perhaps a little more Beatles-esque. I featured Gotye earlier on the blog, and if you remember what his Like Drawing Blood sounded like, then you've got a pretty good idea of the The Basics' sound. Their newest effort Stand Out/Fit In, is full of delightful pop harmonies and psuedo-reggae influences, which combine to create a cheery selection of songs that succeed at being what we call infectiously catchy.
Go to iTunes to buy Stand Out/Fit In (iTunes will open if you click this link).
Listen to "Hey There!" (4.8/5)
Listen to "Rattle My Chain" (4.6/5)

Labels: ,

nothing like Gotye dude!
seriously, listen to his album again. yes, Like Drawing Blood is eclectic, but he doesnt channel any 60s Beatlesque pop in there.

the basics are awesome though, you did well finding them.

Wally de backer is a god.
