Hi friends, I've just released the next song from the forthcoming album "Low Key", it's called 'The Wolf & The Hare': We recorded it last year at Abbey Road Studios in London with John Blease on drums, Adam Chetwood on guitar, Paddy Milner on keys and our very own Tim Heath playing bass and lead alongside Adam. We recorded it all in one take, straight to tape, thanks to Sam Okell and Toby Hulbert. It's gone live on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, TIDAL, and there's a fab video I made with Ryan Gaskett, and starring Natia Evergreen and Mariyah Hoosenally being amazing. In-part inspired by Richard Marx's 'Hazard', the song is something like a plea of innocence and an admission of guilt, an exploration of mental health, power, predator and prey in the new world of internet relationships, emotional manipulation and sugar daddies. It's about the closest thing we'll get to a new Basics song for the time being, so please add it to your music library, and most of all enjoy!

It’s not easy to fill Wally @gotye’s shoes - but we luckily had the remarkable blue sneakers of Mr @brettwolfie Esq. to take on the job. And doesn’t he look fantastic!! Congratulations again to Rohan and Alex on their nuptials. It was a beautiful day.

Meeting Phil Keoghan from @theamazingrace_cbs was hands-down the 2nd greatest moment of my life (after meeting Sir George Martin). He was an absolute gentleman and thanks to Butt/Bert for the photo #theamazingrace #theamazingrice #newzealand #australia

Hello everyone - Wally here! Happy New Year to you all, I hope it's already started excellently 🥳 Here's an idea: get yourself and those around you in a good mood with this playlist of hand-picked Basics songs I myself put together on Spotify: And if you’re in the NYC area on January 16th, perhaps it will get you pumped for our upcoming one-night-only sets Rockwood Music Hall that night. There are tickets left for both 7pm and 9pm, where we’ll do two completely different sets of material. Lots of love! 🥰 Wally
