Tame Impala are capping off their big year with the release of the official visual for their track, Breathe Deeper. Directed by Butt Studio, the visual accompaniment for the song pairs 3D and expressive drawn animation techniques in an abstract and kaleidoscopic landscape.
The musical project of Kevin Parker, Tame Impala recently announced the release of a special 10 year anniversary edition of their debut album, InnerSpeaker. If that wasn’t enough, the group will also release a new limited edition colour vinyl pressing of their latest record, The Slow Rush.
Following his slew of wins at the ARIA Awards, including taking home the award for including Album of the Year, Best Group, Best Rock Album, Engineer of the Year and Producer of the Year, we spoke to Parker in the media suite to discuss the evolution of Tame Impala since the release of InnerSpeaker in 2010 and the significance of their debut albums ten year anniversary. The musician shared: “I think naturally it’s changed a lot, which is only because I love to evolve as an artist. I love to do different things. It would kind of sad and me if I was doing the same thing for ten years. Like if It happened to be that ten years later the albums kind of sound the same it would be kind of like, you know, ‘what am I doing here?’ But yeah it’s a really emotional, really emotional experience thinking about that album being 10 years old and going I’m going like wow that’s who I was then, that was the music I was making then and this is who I am now. Which is kind of all part of it I guess.”
Tame Impala was recently nominated for two GRAMMY Awards for Best Alternative Album and Best Rock Song for the single Lost In Yesterday. This marks the third nomination in the Alternative category for Parker, having previously been nominated for Currents and Lonerism. Earlier this year, Parker was nominated for two Billboard Music Awards and an American Music Award (AMA).
