Tame Impala's new 'Mind Mischief' video starts out in the the grand tradition of classics like Van Halen's 'Hot for Teacher' and the Police's 'Don't Stand So Close to Me': It features a young student in the time-honored roll of lusting after a teacher. But when the prep-school pupil follows his hottie instructor out to her car and the two share a smoke of some wacky tobaccy, things quickly switch over from sexy to psychedelic, as an animated world takes over.
Aussie psych rockers Tame Impala teamed up with directing duo Joe Pelling and Becky Sloan for a video for 'Feels Like We Only Go Backwards,' the latest single off their 'Lonerism' album. Like the song, the video is gorgeously tripped out, with an explosion of bright colors dancing, spinning and melting into each other, forming geometric shapes and floating through a time warp. Like, dig it, man.
Tame Impala get totally psychedelic with their video for 'Elephant,' the first single off their forthcoming sophomore full-length, 'Lonerism,' which drops Oct. 9. Director Yoshi Sodeoka made the clip using live footage of the Aussie psych-rock act from the Silentlights, and the tripped-out results fall somewhere in between a moving-picture version of Pink Floyd's 'The Piper at the Gates of Dawn' and 'Meddle' album covers.
Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker is no stranger to inner journeys. The voyage gets scenic with 'Apocalypse Dreams,' a psychedelic first taste of the band's sophomore record, 'Lonerism.'
