‘Borderline’ and Trap in Coachella, The Comeback of Tame Impala

Two new singles are fresh out of the oven, shaking up the desire for a possible new album by the band this year. The psychedelic rock band was out of sight for four years, since the release of ‘Currents’, in 2015.

The first advance of this upcoming new album (that indie fans expect to see before 2020) from the Australians Tame Impala, was the song ‘Patience’ (very much in the line of ‘Currents’) that they presented live in the television show ‘Saturday Night Live’. After that psychedelic track, the next song presented is titled ‘Borderline’ and it also was presented for the first time on this performance. This single captivated the followers of this band, who fell in love with the new song that, despite the years that have passed, maintains the characteristic sound of Tame Impala. The fans are still waiting for the band to confirm if they will publish a new album or they will have to settle with this pair of singles recently published and their presentations at festivals. This is the newest material from the catchy single ‘Currents’, after which they took a break, so it’s a good indication of what’s coming.

This release precedes the extraordinary participation at the Coachella music festival where they presented an interesting mix of psychedelic rock and trap, a totally winning combination. The performance was done in collaboration with the American rapper ASAP Rocky, it was definitely unusual, but it left fans expecting more. This was the band’s fourth participation in the famous festival, and without a doubt there was much expectation on the part of the public for the recent release of the two singles, people had the hope of enjoying more new material and were surprised with this unexpected collaboration. On the one hand, the performance of the Australians was one of the most acclaimed indie rock shows among the festival’s headliners. On the other hand, ASAP Rocky is one of the most representative trappers and is present in all the playlist of young Americans. In fact, according to a report by Billboard site, the band included in the setlist for this show, 16 songs. Making a review of their hits from the past and seizing the opportunity to perform their brand-new singles in front of such a big crowd, plus this mind-blowing collaboration that surprised everyone in the second weekend of Coachella.

It’s a well-known fact that the style of Tame Impala, despite being a musical project that goes more towards the spectral, and meditative than other indie bands, represents a more experimental rhythmic side. The combination of Tame Impala and ASAP Rocky explains quite well the spirit that defines the parameters of the alternative and independent for this generation and it’s clear that it’s an event that could only occur in such an eclectic festival as Coachella, although many purists of the genre don’t see with good eyes these unusual collaborations.

Then it’s possible to affirm with total confidence that the expected return of Tame Impala is a fact and that they will do it through the big door with new more experimental sounds and who knows? Maybe with some song featuring some famous trapper.
