Tame Impala


Formed in Perth, Australia, Kevin Parker’s Tame Impala have helped to bring psychedelic sounds floating back into the 21st century.

Kevin Parker bounced between a number of acts in the Perth scene before some home recordings he posted on Myspace under the name ‘Tame Impala’ earned him some label attention, eventually going on to sign a deal with Modular Recordings.

A self-titled EP was released in 2008 which had some success in the Australian Independent charts and even garnered some radio time for singles like ‘Half Full Glass of Wine’.

After enlisting the help of a few other musicians including Dominic Simper on bass and Jay Watson on drums, Kevin and Tame Impala spent most of 2008 and 2009 touring and playing shows with the likes of The Black Keys and MGMT. This all led up to the release of their debut album ‘Innerspeaker’ which was a huge success not only in their native Australia but the UK and US too. A ‘Best New Music’ title from Pitchfork was just some of the praise the album received, also picking up awards for ‘album of the year’ from places like Triple J.

This momentum carried through into the release of their follow up album ‘Lonerism’ which represented an expanding sound for the band and far eclipsed the successes of the previous album. Its release was met with universal acclaim and went on to be dubbed the album of the year by the NME and other publications and even got a Grammy nod.

Now they are alive and festival staple meaning more and more people are witnessing the transition Tame Impala’s music makes, from the mind of Kevin Parker to stages around the world.
