Since the release of 2010’s widely acclaimed album Inner Speaker, Australia’s Tame Impala have mesmerised music fans with their kaleidoscopic, kraut-tinged psych-pop, which can take you to the edge of the universe and back in a heart beat. Full of throbbing, fuzzed-up guitar riffs and tumbling bass lines as well as unforgettable choruses full of well-crafted lyrics, Tame Impala’s live shows are a blissed-out, exhilarating affair. With new album Lonerism, the band have progressed their sound with deeply textural synths and atmospheric jams, further cementing their reputation as one of the finest purveyors of their genre.
