The 2nd single from the forthcoming album by this highly-acclaimed Australian act is accompanied by an enchanting CGI video.
Never let it be said that we don’t champion Australian music here at MVD with posts on Total Giavanni and Alpine already this year, and now this from Perth’s Tame Impala aka Kevin Parker who first found recognition with debut LP Innerspeakers in 2010. The sound then was mining psychedelia and garage rock from the late 60’s/early 70’s, and to wonderful effect, winning Rolling Stone magazine’s album of the year award.
This new single moves away from that towards a more late-night lo-fi sound, Parker’s soulful falsetto vocal sounding (sort of) like an indie Prince. It’s great stuff and recommendation enough on its own, however it also comes with a wonderful video of two 3D models going through all the stages of a relatioship, the good the bad, the happy and sad and… well, you get the idea. It really is a treat.
Tame Impala release their third album Currents on Interscope records on July 17th 2015. You can find out more about everything right here.
