Teenage wunderkind songwriter, producer and artist Japanese Wallpaper and I dig into Tame Imapala’s Currents, Kevin Parker’s introspective disco gem which just turned one year old.
How did Parker construct songs that were equal parts emotionally devastating and danceable banger? What are the key influences that make up the Tame Impala sound? How do you know when to stop when you can control all aspects of your music to the nth degree? What does it sound like when you cut Rihanna’s cover of Tame’s “New Person Same Old Mistakes” together with the original? and what does ‘Currents’ have in common with Carly Slay Jepsen’s ‘Emotion’ LP?
