The Australians are back: With "Currents" the long awaited successor to the successful album "Lonerism" is finally on the shelves. The band, founded in 2007, was already successful in their homeland with their debut album "Innerspeaker" from 2010, the worldwide breakthrough came two years later. The latest work is also deeply rooted in the 1960s and 1970s. Rocky guitar sounds meet psychedelic waving sound structures. "Currents" again offers psychedelic rock at its best - in the style of companions like MGMT or Temples.
"Kevin Parker adds warm electronics to his psychedelic rock." (Rolling Stone, August 2015)
"The name Tame Impala has long since arrived in pop without losing its indie credibility." (music express, August 2015)
"'Currents' is flawless synth pop. (...) And if you think, now it's enough with the 80s synthie sauce, 60s rock guitars fry in and save the song." (stereoplay, September 2015)
"Singer and songwriter Kevin Parker combines sweet melodies and lively beats to a colorful pop cocktail. More of these, please." (Stereo, October 2015)
