Tame Impala received their second career GRAMMY nomination for 'Best Alternative Album' for their wildly inventive, genre-breaking album Currents. Currents received near unanimous critical acclaim and has been included in 2015 Best Of lists by Pitchfork, Stereogum, Consequence of Sound, Spin, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly and more. Consequence of Sound also named them "Band of the Year." The band is pleased to announce they will now return to the U.S. for shows this summer.
Currents was written, recorded, produced and mixed by Kevin Parker in Fremantle, West Australia. Lyrically the record finds Parker in a very different place in 2015 to where he was seven years ago. Transitions in life, relationships, perspectives, mindsets - Currents maps Parker's evolution through these and finds him a brand new person.
