Family Basik (Family Basic) is a brother-sister duo by Yu Kato and Rima Kato. It releases the first album in 2014 and becomes a hot topic among enthusiastic music fans. While this work concentrates the scent of indie pop such as The High Lamaz, Stereolab, Jim O'Rourke, Sea and Cake, Yo La Tengo, the finish is a 70's warmth It became a certain sound.

Also, it is wonderful to arrange electronic music such as analog synths which has been introduced to a large extent and a delicate arrangement such that fertile live instruments blend together exquisitely.

It is a painful and tender music that has been quietly raised on an isolated island lighthouse.

Two exquisite chorus work and experimental arrangement are also wonderful.
A new voyage of one ship and Family Basik who finally rowed to the sea starts here.

The production team is in charge of composition, lyrics, recording, and mixing, Kato Yu is responsible, mastering is Chihei Hatakeyama.
Jacket painting is painter Kenichi Tenamoto, design is in charge of ASUNA.
