Existential angst has never been so much fun. Furman is a restless soul who makes a virtue of the fact, managing to channel this into music with an infectious, frenetic energy.

The Age of Entitlement is an album for the ages. Taking on Australian politics in 2015 with the same clarity and passion as Midnight Oil did in 1982 with 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1, The Basics present a fine collection of engaging songs delivered with feeling, humour and acumen.
