As one of the premier names in the resurgence of psychedelic rock over the last few years, it seems that Tame Impala are looking to do something a bit different this time around. The band's third album 'Currents' seems to step away from the sound of their formative years as this new release experiments with a more soulful direction that exposes more of the credentials the man at the helm is responsible for.
Until recently, Tame Impala has been portrayed as a full band but for 'Currents', Kevin Parker has let it be know that he is the band and thus given his music a whole new perspective, mainly a far more intimate one. Gone are the big and bold anthems of the previous albums as this new full-length aims to embark on more of an eclectic journey, where loud and soft exist side by side and makes for a far more engaging and lucid listen.
'Currents' is most definitely the beginning of an evolution for Tame Impala. These new influences and public perceptions have almost rebuilt the band's sound from scratch and the result makes for a very refreshing surprise.
