Biography

It’s been nine years since Tame Impala’s maiden Pukkelpop show. Back in the day they were a modest lo-fi psychedelic rock band from faraway Australia and their enchanting debut ‘Innerspeaker’ had just been unleashed upon an unsuspecting world. Who would have thought that Tame Impala would mature into a dream pop factory that even Rihanna wants a piece of (her cover of ‘Same Ol’ Mistakes)? Or that alpha Impala and multi-instrumentalist Kevin Parker would collaborate with Kanye West, Travis Scott, Mark Ronson and Kendrick Lamar? Fortunately these sidesteps have whet the talented Australian’s appetite for more Impala, preferably served with a sweet psych pop sauce on a bed of Kiewit festival arena grass.
