In 2015 the mainstream was ready. Tame Impala’s third album ‘Currents’ ascended them from the fuzzy underground to the top in almost every way imaginable. Mastermind Kevin Parker – who writes, performs, and mixes all the music – had finally done it. Perfection. Critics, listeners and colleagues all agreed: ‘Currents’ was a flawless rock album. And it still is. They headlined festivals, sold out arenas, collaborated with artists such as Travis Scott and Kanye West, and even received the honor of being covered by Rihanna. After a five year wait, their fourth album ‘Slow Rush’ (2020) arrived, and it didn’t disappoint. ‘Slow Rush’ was smoother and more relaxed while still maintaining Parker’s multifaceted, ever evolving sonics and his immaculate capability of writing psychedelic-infused pop.
Naming a contemporary rock act more influential than Tame Impala is not an easy task, and their role when it comes to defining the last decade of alternative music is hard to overstate. Pinch your arm all you want; it won’t change the fact that Tame Impala is coming to Way Out West 2022!
