Tame Impala - Solitude is Bliss

Sound of the Week

Tame Impala

Tame Impala is a three-piece indie band from Perth, Australia. The genre? I will describe it as psychadelica, hypno-groove, beat-poet-ish fuzz-rock. You? Their debut LP Innerspeaker, which seems to be about love and loss, was released this May and was mixed by Flaming Lips collaborator Dave Fridmann.

Fun Facts

  • Band Members: Kevin Parker (vocals, Lead Guitar), Dom Simper (Bass Guitar) and Jay Watson (Drums, Backing vocals).

  • The band counts among it's influences Massive Attack, Beck and The Doors.

  • They will be performing thier first US tour this summer with MGMT.
