About Tame Impala
Founded in the Perth music scene by driving force and lead singer Kevin Parker, Tame Impala have released three albums and a number of EPs.
Their first album, Innerspeaker, was released in May 2010 and earned the band critical acclaim. The album, which was written and composed by Kevin Parker (except for The Bold Arrow Of Time in which he worked with Jay Watson), won Rolling Stones’ Album of the Year award and has been hailed as one of The 100 Best Albums of the Decade So Far by Pitchfork Media.
With the incredible reception of Innerspeaker, Tame Impala returned with Lonerism in 2012. Again, the collection was written, produced and recorded by Kevin Parker with the help of Jay Watson, who contributed on two tracks.
The psychedelic rock sounds and Kevin Parker’s soothing sounds continued on Lonerism, which sent the music critics into joy once again. The band landed a number of awards for the collection, including a second Album of the Year award from Rolling Stone.
2015 saw the release of Currents. The album proved to be a change in sound for Kevin Parker and Tame Impala. Although still heavily influenced by psychedelic rock, Currents features more dance inspired songs with a heavy focus on synthesizers.
Currents was written, produced and recorded by Kevin Parker. However, this time he also mixed the record himself. The album continued the success of earlier releases and topped the UK’s first ever Prog Albums Chart.
