Introducing Paulina Caine, a singer song writer from the duo Basic Desire.
Together with Kubik (a local producer) they combine electronic sounds with melodic vocals, releasing some of Australia's most haunting electronic music.
Paulina has a fan base in Poland where she is originally from, with her latest cover of 'My Heat Will Go On' from the film Titanic reaching over 20,000 views on Youtube:-
The band consists of Paulina Caine, the lead vocalist and lyricist, and Henry Kubik, the composer who also produces the music. Both of them have an extensive musical experience behind them, and it was their passion for making music with a message, that brought them together to write and perform as a band.
Henry has already produced two albums that have given him recognition in Australia. He has released 'The Touch' in 1995 and later on, Beyond that has further enhanced his reputation as one of the best emerging electronic musicians in Australia.
Paulina received classical training, but decided to pursue a pop career. She performed with a number of original and cover bands around Perth (see: Flame, On the Edge, Chemical Jane and Jamez Jonez Experience). Her esoteric and extremely expressive voice is the driving force behind BASIC DESIRE, allowing the group to develop such a powerful style of music.
Paulina has been performing at various festivals around Australia (including Perth Festival, PolArt Festivals, Christmas Concerts in Darling Harbour, Sydney Festival and Multicultural Festival in Canberra), as well as, touring with overseas acts, such as BoneyM.
