Tame Impala‘s highly anticipated 2020 album The Slow Rush is here in full form, and what an extravagant, psychedelic journey it is.


It’s been five years since Kevin Parker‘s last body of work, Currents, which made waves with “Let It Happen,” “The Less I Know the Better,” and much more. Certainly a tough act to follow, but The Slow Rush seems to pick up right where he left off, only amplifying that distinct Tame Impala sound.

Described vivaciously through its press release, The Slow Rush is “Parker’s deep dive into the oceans of time, conjuring the feeling of a lifetime in a lightning bolt, of major milestones whizzing by while you’re looking at your phone, it’s a paean to creation and destruction and the unending cycle of life.” There’s a weight to it, a heaviness that can only be heard with an open mind, miles away from any distractions.

Parker revealed to the New York Times, “A lot of the songs carry this idea of time passing, of seeing your life flash before your eyes, being able to see clearly your life from this point onwards. I’m being swept by this notion of time passing. There’s something really intoxicating about it.”

That may be so, but anyone who has seen Tame Impala live knows that time seems to stand still when they’re performing. Listen to The Slow Rush here and see the band’s full list of tour dates below.
