The Basics have come back with as much style and sound as ever! It’s been a grand time seeing them ‘get back’ to their roots and return with even more gusto!

Yet again our fave fella’ Gotye is adding his voice to the ongoing debate on the ethics and policy of Australia’s response to asylum seekers. Recently he joined the Asylum Seekers Resource Center (ASRC) again to promote their Hot Potato initiative to generate a new angle on the debate!

More Interviews on the Horizon

Hiya Gotye nuts!

If you’re a fan of Gotye music, you must have brilliant taste in music overall! Recently some fab collabs with Gotye have come around including the lovely Hotel Home by Spender and the brain-sounds of Jake Rush’s Louis Spoils project.

We’re happy to say that we’ll be doing more Gotye collaborator interviews with both of these talented fellows! Check out some of the work they’ve been doing and the tunes we’ll learn more about soon!
