Fun Pop Rock - The Perfect Party Album

The Basics are just that - great pop rock with strong, simple melodies that gently reference the legends of music.

You can hear influences as diverse as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, pretty much every fun rock group of the 70's (including the Beach Boys) ... there's even hints of Neil Diamond & Booker T. & the M.G.'s!

That said, The Basics create their own sound with two lead vocalists (yes, one is Wally de Backer AKA Gotye) sharing the duties.

This is a fantastic collection to launch the boys into the mainstream, with frenetic rock, dashes of R&B, and a ballad thrown in for good measure. Listen to at least three tracks to get an idea of the quality and breadth of their style: I'd recommend "With This Ship", "The No. 1 Cause of Death Amongst Youth Today" and "Sound Off".

Then be sure to play it loud at your next party.

love hearing anything from Gotye
