You may have heard of Triple J, a somewhat legendary alternative radio station in Australia. Their segment ‘Like a Version’ which is akin to BBC’s Live Lounge… ish, has had some incredible artists take on cover versions of favourite pop songs. It seems Tame Impala have taken this year’s title however with their cover of Kylie Minogue’s ‘Confide in Me’.
The original song had some very dark undertones running throughout but Tame Impala have put on their best psyche forward and turned it in to a massive, dreamy, twirling hit.
The band’s skill being lent so easily to the almost operatic original is compounded by Kevin Parker’s incredible vocal, which by all accounts was at least equal to Kylie’s efforts. The bold choice of song just shows how far Tame Impala are willing to push themselves musically – very far indeed.
