Paulina Caine will be performing some of the greatest love songs from Basic Desire's catalog at the Gaslight Club ( " A music club for people with open minds", hosted by Steve Tallis. ), in Fremantle.
Time has come to re-record some of our first releases. We've learnt a lot over the years, changed our recording process and acquired some new gear.
So, here is "Once again"...once again ;)) and a new video clip to go with it....
"A woman sits lonely on her bed in a dark, small room, preparing for a peaceful night's sleep. Suddenly she feels a sharp pain in her chest and realizes it's going to be her last night. But this does not sadden her and a sudden wave of vaguely touchable memories lightens up her face. She smiles spontaneously. His face becomes as vivid as it was all those years ago, when she could feel his warm breath and delicate touch. She knows she will be with him again soon, without any pain, sadness or separation. She knows that true love lasts forever. With a smile on her face she goes to sleep, from which she will not awaken, until she is with him once again...."
We are very excited to share with you our latest demo 'Garden of stars'!
Recorded in our home
studio, this beautiful ballad is a great movie soundtrack material.
When we were writing the
lyrics and then recording, we wanted to create something very spiritual,
something that would make people examine the strength of their own
relationships. As a result, we embraced a new, softer, yet more dramatic sound.
"If anyone out there has just fallen in love or is looking for a serene feel,
this ballad is definitely for you. It has a poignant sentimentality to it. The
semi-classical vocal is perfect for the theme of an everlasting love. The lead
vocalist reminds me of Elaine Page whose amazing, delicate voice was so popular
in the 80's. Worth a listen to. Compared to some of the groups that seem to make
it in the ARIA charts, BASIC DESIRE is very original musically." Graham Sayer

It seems that Henry's first song ( for those who don't know, Henry composes
all of Basic Desire's songs) on the album The Touch, inspired Hans Zimmer and
