Get To Know: Tame Impala

Tame Impala has been gaining popularity within the last three years. The Perth, Australia based psychedelic rock project headed by Kevin Parker emerged onto the music scene in 2010 with their debut, Innerspeaker. They just released their sophomore album, Lonerism, this past October to critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, NME and more. It was created in a similar set up as Innerspeaker, being that Kevin Parker wrote and recorded the majority of the album by himself at his home in Perth.

Tame Impala has been noted to give off nostalgic vibes from the greats that came before them such as The Beatles and Pink Floyd. I let my dad listen to them one day in the car and he flipped out; not something he normally does when I let him listen to music of this decade. He bought their album immediately after that. Major dad approval.

I’m not sure if I would consider Tame Impala an “emerging band,” but if you’ve never heard of them before, I guess today is your lucky day!
