Coming out of the sleepy city of Perth, where bands are either really good or bad, but always having a blast, Tame Impala is a head trip to the outer limits of psychedelic rock. Consisting of Kevin Parker (lead guitar and vocals), Dominic Simper (bass guitar) and Jay Watson (drums and backing vocals) the band isn’t all about grazing bambies though.
Tame Impala’sÂ groovy arrangements have won for singles taken from their self-titled EP airplay on Australia’s Triple J.Â An excellent example of their musical magic carpet ride is the single ‘Half Full Glass of Wine’, a trippy melodic stomp which has brought back the art of the drum solo. Simply put, Tame Impala is Led Zeppelin, Cream and Jimi Hendrix aboard one big happy yellow submarine.
