Tame Impala, ‘Elephant’ – New Video
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.
In fact, ‘Elephant’ sounds remarkably like ‘One of These Days,’ the lead track off ‘Meddle’ — perhaps with a little fuzzy Black Sabbath low-end thrown in for good measure. Listen to the ‘These Days’ here if you don’t believe us.
