The Basics were formed in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia in 2002 by Kris Schroeder and Wally de Backer (AKA Gotye). Their musical style can loosely be described as heavily referencing 60s pop and rock (eg The Beatles, The Beach Boys) with elements of reggae and rhythm & blues. Tim Heath joined the group in June 2004, while Dave Bramble joins the band on tour, playing keys, often while sporting a large moustache. Their live performances are well known for their sense of humour and energy.
