The Basics may have turned their brains off but listeners should keep theirs firmly switched on. The funky and very polished style presented by this tightly tuned trio should be fully appreciated.
Vocals and rhythm combine to give an underlying sense of enjoyment from the musicians.
Switching effortlessly between songs, the band allows just enough time for a bit of banter and a live display of musical versatility.
My Brain’s Off is rich, smooth and full of controlled energy; The Basics’ mix of covers and originals is aurally enriching. (SP)
