Tame Impala is an Australian rock band founded by Kevin Parker in 2007.


The group began as a home recording project for Parker, who writes, records, performs, and produces the music. As a touring act, the project consists of Parker (guitar, vocals), Jay Watson (synthesiser, vocals, guitar), Dominic Simper (guitar, synthesiser), Cam Avery (bass guitar, vocals), and Julien Barbagallo (drums, vocals).

The Perth-based band garnered a wave of steadfast fans and international recognition since the release of their self-titled debut EP in 2008. The album was followed by their sublimely popular albums “Innerspeaker” (2010) and “Lonerism” (2012). In 2015, they returned to the music scene with “Currents”, which was described as “Best New Music” by the highly critical music site, Pitchfork.
