Tame Impala Performs at NPR Music Tiny Desk Home Concert
- Australian psychedelic music project Tame Impala appeared on NPR Music Tiny Desk (home) Concert to perform “Breathe Deeper”, “Is It True” and “Patience”.
Kevin Parker, Jay Watson and Dom Simper played from Kevin Parker's home studio in Australia.
“I'll get Jay (Watson) and Dom (Simper) and we'll do this kind of electronic jam with heaps of equipment around us and we'll recreate the songs with samplers and sequencers,” Kevin Parker says. "I've wanted to do something like this for a while and thought Tiny Desk would be the opportunity to do it.”
“Breathe Deeper” and “Is It True” are included on his latest album “The Slow Rush” released back in February. The album is his first LP in five years. Also, he performed “Breathe Deeper” on Jimmy Kimmel Live on March 2nd.
Kevin Parker said of “Breathe Deeper”, “First time. I need to be guided. Everything feels new. Like a single-cell organism granted one day as a human. We're all together. Why isn't it always like this?”
He said of “Is It True”, “Young love is uncertain. Let's not talk about the future. We don't know what it holds. I hope it's forever but how do I know? When all is said and done, all you can say is 'we'll see.'”
“Patience” was released in 2019 as a stand-alone single. According to a press release the song was inspired by 1970s disco and 1990s house.
