Tame Impala comes to Hammersmith Apollo on 25th June 2013.
In other news the official video for 'Feels Like We Only Go Backwards' has now clocked over 500,000 hits on YouTube just a fortnight after being posted. Created by animators Joe Pelling & Becky Sloan, it’s a hypercolour wave, a visual imprint of their sonic landscape, and totally Tame Impala.
Critical acclaim for Lonerism, out now on Modular Recordings:
“Sounds phase in and out, drums thunder, guitars chime with warm, valve amp bite, voices are multi-tracked into luscious harmonies, loops repeat and vocals echo distantly. Parker has created a groove-based collection that packs in pop melodies.”
NME - 9/10
“Lonerism displays an innate understanding of psychedelia, not least in its balance between the beatific and the bleak. This is underpinned by genuinely great songwriting and an innate pop sensibility.”
The Guardian - 5 Stars *****
“Tame Impala are the sound of brave new worlds and sunlit uplands. The second album from the Perth band combines psychedelic pop and lush electronica more beautifully than anyone.”
The Independent on Sunday – 4.5/5 (CD of the Week)
Supporting the band on the night will be Melody's Echo Chamber.
