Lollapalooza Spotlight: Tame Impala
Tame Impala is one of several bands from Australia and New Zealand that have become popular over the past few years. Notable Australian bands of late have usually fallen under the electro-pop category, but Tame Impala brings us something a little different. Their music is described as psychedelic rock, mind bending, and atmospheric. They believe, “if their music reminds you of what you would want to put on when you next visit your mind’s engine room,” they’ve succeeded. The band performs at several different festivals world wide and they are no stranger to the Lollapalooza scene.
The quartet is made up of Kevin Parker, Nick Allbrook, Dam Simper, and Jay Watson. They are heavily influenced by The Beatles, recording much of their hypno-groove rock at their home in Perth. Innerspeaker is their latest album referring to the species of Impala. They were given several awards in the ARIA Music Awards in Australia for their work on Innerspeaker.
Tame Impala will perform at Lollapalooza on Friday August 3rd
