Biography

Perth, Australia (2008 – present)

Tame Impala is a psychedelic rock band from Perth, Australia. It is the project of Kevin Parker who writes and records almost all of the music by himself. The live band consists of Kevin Parker (lead guitar and vocals), Dominic Simper (guitar and synth), Jay Watson (synth and backing vocals), Julien Barbagallo (drums), Nick Allbrook (ex-bassist) who decided to leave the band mid 2013 and is now being replaced by their close friend, Cam Avery (from Pond).

Their name refers to the impala, a medium sized antelope. Their musical sound draws from a wide range of influences (most notably ’60s and ’70s psychedelic rock) and they like to see themselves as “a steady flowing psychedelic groove rock band that emphasizes dream-like melody.”

The band signed a worldwide deal with label Modular Recordings in mid 2008, releasing their self titled EP in late 2008 and the single ‘Sundown Syndrome’ in 2009. Their debut album, “Innerspeaker”, was released in 2010 to widespread critical acclaim. Their second album, “Lonerism”, was released on October 5th, 2012.

    @XDRory why can't it be the best song of the year to some people? What makes you think that because you listen to a lot of music (and that's relative) you know better than them? We all listen to a lot of music otherwise we wouldn't be talking about it on here. Personally I like it, I wouldn't say it's the best of the year but that's my humble opinion and if people think it is, then good for them!

    please tell me you're all kidding about Let it Happen [2] It's a good song but if you genuinely think it's the best of the year so far then you mustn't be listening to much else

    Грядущий альбом, чувствуется, будет полным отстоем, но надеюсь на обратное

    let it happen : yeah its catchy, pretty basic actually. i see this aimed mostly to be remixed by dj's. the beats and melodies make it obvious. hope the rest doesn't sound like this
