Tame Impala | Artist
Tame Impala is an Australian psychedelic rock band formed 2007 in Perth by singer and multi-instrumentalist Kevin Parker. The band began as a home-recording project for Parker who writes, records and produces the music, and is the lead vocalist and guitarist of the band. Current lineup also includes Jay Watson on drums and keyboards, and Don Simper on bass and synths. Parker and Watson also play in the band Pond. Tame Impala came out of Perth's vibrant indie scene and has gone on to win a swag of music industry awards in Australia and internationally for their modern-day psychedelic sound. To-date they have released four excellent studio albums; Innerspeaker, Lonerism, Currents and The Slow Rush, plus the 2014 Live Versions album. The latest album 2020's The Slow Rush, scales back the guitars for a more '70s dreamy synth-vibe sound. Parker has stated that Supertramp is one of his favourite bands, and a major influence on the musical style of Tame Impala. He has also confessed to "a fetish for extremely sugary pop music" from artists like Britney Spears and Kylie Minogue.
