Wandering Wally

The news broke yesterday at the ‘last Basics gig for a long while’ that our favorite guy will be heading across the seas to NYC to focus on the next stage of the Gotye project! It was a somewhat somber night for AUS fans and his Basics brothers, and we’re excited for Wally to take some time to focus on what’s next for his brilliant career!

Check out this lovely vid of Wally performing Bronte from his 2011 hit album Making Mirrors last night at the Basics gig!
