Tame Impala

 

Info

Tame Impala ( /tm ɪmˈpɑːlə/[4]) is a psychedelic rock band conceived by Australian multi-instrumentalist Kevin Parker.[5] The band began as a home-recording project for Parker, who writes, records, performs, and produces the music.

As a touring act, Parker (guitar, vocals) plays alongside the members of Australian psychedelic rock band PondJay Watson (synthesiser, vocals, guitar), Dominic Simper (guitar, synthesiser), Cam Avery (bass guitar, vocals), and Julien Barbagallo (drums, vocals). Previously signed to Modular Recordings, Tame Impala is now signed to Interscope Records[6] in the US, and Fiction Records in the UK.

After a series of singles and EPs, in 2010, the band released their debut studio album, Innerspeaker, which was certified gold in Australia and well received by critics. Their 2012 follow-up, Lonerism, was also acclaimed, reaching platinum status in Australia and receiving a Grammy Award nomination for Best Alternative Music Album. The band's third album, Currents, was released in July 2015,[7] and like its predecessor, it won ARIA Awards for Best Rock Album and Album of the Year. Parker won the APRA Award for Song of the Year 2016 for Currents' first track, "Let It Happen".[8]
