Tame Impala returned to the live-stage with two sold-out hometown show in Perth, Australia, this weekend.
The country has dealt with coronavirus efficiently. Now, live music has returned, with mask-free capacity-crowds enjoying a dose of Kevin Parker’s Tame Impala Sound System on Friday and Saturday at the Metro City venue. The moniker allowed the group to give their songs more of an electronic feel and judging from the videos. The venue was full of euphoria on both evenings.
The reason why fans received a Tame Impala Sound System show is due to two members of the touring band living overseas and COVID restrictions preventing them from returning home to Australia. Parker first improvised under this new alias for the band’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert for NPR last year, as well as a session for BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac.
Parker previously described Tame Impala Sound System as “wielding their overflowing arsenal of synths, sequencers and samplers to rework and reimagine tracks from the Tame Impala discography and beyond, Tame Impala Sound System is a pulsating, fully live and organic, free-flowing digital jam out.”
Tame Impala are gearing up to release an expanded deluxe edition of their debut album, Innerspeaker, which will be available on March 26th to celebrate the record turning 10 last year. The new edition will include new mixes of the tracks ‘Alter Ego’ and ‘Runway, Houses, City, Clouds’ and instrumentals and demos. Fans will also hear a previously unreleased recording of ‘Wave House Live Jam’.
