BASIC DESIRE are an Australian duo who combine electronic sounds with melodic vocals, creating lush ambient landscapes. The band consists of Paulina Caine – the lead vocalist and lyricist, and Henry Kubik – the composer who also produces the music.

Paulina received classical training, but decided to pursue a pop career, performing with a number of original and cover bands around W.A. ( Flame, On the Edge, Chemical Jane, Accents & Jamez Jonez). Paulina's esoteric and extremely expressive voice, is the driving force behind BASIC DESIRE, allowing the group to develop such a powerful style of music.

Kubik 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 composers.

BASIC DESIRE have been performing at festivals around the country (including Perth Festival, PolArt Festivals, Christmas Concerts in Darling Harbour, Sydney Festival and National Multicultural Festival in Canberra), as well as, touring with overseas acts, such as BoneyM. Paulina has also been asked to perform the National Anthem at various sporting events.
