Dense with heady lyrical introspection, musically the most playful, bold and varied Tame Impala record to date, Currents is Parker putting down his weapons and embracing change as the only constant - sonically, thematically, and personally.
Parker indulges his whims with the resultant record calling to mind contemporary hip hop production, Thriller, fried 70s funk, the irreverent playground Daft Punk presented on Discovery, swathes of future pop and emotional 80s balladry, all filtered through a thoroughly modern psychedelic third eye.
The first track from the record, Let It Happen, is a perfectly encapsulating preview of what lies ahead. The drums and Parker’s vocal introduction lull the listener with a sense of familiarity, until it all sweeps up into a cosmos once populated only by French robots, with insistent melody, broken machine loops, synthetic orchestration, surfing vocoder and a shredding guitar outro.
Performed, recorded, produced and mixed by Kevin Parker, Tame Impala presents Currents, a soundtrack to life’s turbulent flow.
