It's only a matter of time before Melbourne's The Basics hit it big. Already, the blogosphere is picking up on their fun, catchy tunes, and the band has a dedicated (if not relatively small, still) following back home in Australia. Not to mention their drummer/lead vocalist is none other than Wally De Backer, the one man band known as Gotye, who released one of the best albums of 2006, Like Drawing Blood. Much like Gotye, The Basics sing and play songs that recall an era gone by, with layered vocals and toe-tapping rhythms that stick in your head for days after hearing them.

The Basics are currently touring the east coast of Australia and their first full length LP, Stand Out/Fit In, will be released there nationally on 5 May. No tour or album release dates for the States yet, but keep your eyes and ears peeled. This is only the beginning for these guys.

The Basics - Just Hold On
The Basics - Second Best

And for good measure:
Gotye - Learnalilgivinanlovin
