Crush of the Day: Tame Impala – ‘Runway, Houses, City, Clouds’


 Tame Impala Innerspeaker


It is no revelation that Tame Impala’s lead vocalist Kevin Parker channels John Lennon at times. It’s an inevitable comparison. And it is this song in particular that will encourage those little hairs at the back of your neck to sway a little song and dance. “Runway, Houses, City, Clouds” shares parallels with Lennon’s “Jealous Guy”. Now that I’ve put that idea in your head it’ll be difficult to shake off. Nevertheless Tame Impala’s track – from their debut album Innerspeaker – is a psychedelic, dream-like journey through time and space.

If you have time on your hands flip between these two tracks, it is mind blowing. Not only because of the striking similarities, but the fact that these two artists can create holistic and encapsulating worlds with their music.




And if you have even more time on your hands, watch this interview with John Lennon talking about his influence on future bands.
