VIDEO: Tame Impala – “Let It Happen”
Let’s get a couple things out of the way. First, I’ve never been a huge Tame Impala fan. There were tracks here and there that I enjoyed, but their previous efforts never did much for me. Second, I love their new album, Currents. It’s one of the year’s finest releases and “Let It Happen” is as good of a place as any to start. While there are a number of different approaches to songwriting on the album, “Let It Happen” sort of showcases them all. Psych-infused guitar lines, bass heavy distortion and echo-y and modulated vocal parts all make a showing on the track. The video itself is bizarre and fitting for a Tame Impala song. I won’t try to break it down or analyze it because frankly I have no idea what’s going on. Check it out below.
