For the past decade, multi-instrumentalist Kevin Parker has been attracting new audiences around the globe with his psychedelic rock project Tame Impala. With origins from Perth, Australia, the project has evolved from one man’s home-recording venture into an international phenomenon. Classic singles including “Elephant,” “Feels Like We Only Going Backwards,” and “The Less I Know The Better” have been able to attract a diverse audience to their stages, who consistently leave their shows as bigger fans than when they arrived. Loyal fans have appreciated each unique album, most recently 2015’s Currents, as Parker has individually managed to construct “an awesome symphony of sound.” However, experiencing a live show with Tame Impala’s full band has consistently left audiences intoxicated with the group’s intense instrumental and synthetic melodies. Fans can expect Tame Impala to remain consistent at this year’s Pitchfork and perform a trippy, memorable headlining set that should leave fans stumbling home in a happy daze.
