TAME IMPALA – ” Feels Like We Only Go Backwards “

Track taken from Tame Impala’s  Album ‘Lonerism’, out now, everywhere and on Modular Records. The melodies Parker comes up with flow: they’re hooky and instantly memorable. For someone who writes opaque lyrics, what he’s driving at – usually about isolation and loneliness, the pleasures and perils of living largely inside your head – invariably comes across. There’s something really potent and affecting about the way he places lyrics about frailty over the top of such hulking-sounding music: the drums stomp and thunder, the mesh of synthesisers and guitars above them is densely woven. Throughout, Lonerism sounds like the work of someone who knows exactly what he’s doing.
