Kevin Parker got sick. Enough peace-loving hippie music! The sound is louder! This is what he says about Tame Impala’s new album “Currents”, released in July 2015.
In an interview with Yulia Maner, the frontman talks about his hangover, why he likes to fool fans and why he doesn’t care if his music is bought or not.
Fun fact: Kevin Parker, the spiritual father and frontman of the Australian band Tame Impala, best falls asleep to the sound of a knock on the keyboard.
