Tame Impala are in the middle of their Currents celebratory tour, making stops at festivals and appearing on late night shows in between recieving awards for their Grammy-nominated, third studio album. On Monday night (Feb. 1), Kevin Parker and company took the stage on the latest episode of French TV program Le Grande Journal, to jam through a trippy three-song set.
While most U.S. television shows give performers a one-song slot, sometimes two, French TV was gracious with giving Tame Impala enough time to execute three songs, Diffuser notes. It seems the French are the lucky ones, however, for being able to host the Australian natives as they continue on their path to award-winning psychedelia.
Parker, Dominic Simper, Jay Watson, Cam Avery and Julien Barbagallo treated the audience to two tracks from last year's Currents, "The Less I Know the Better" and "Let it Happen." The psychedelic-electronic infused group also dusted off their redundant yet classic 2012 throwback hit, "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards" from their sophomore album, Lonersim.
If this live performance wasn't enough for you, Tame Impala already have tour dates listed for 2016. They'll play Manchester on Feb. 11 and London on Feb. 12 and 13 in the U.K. Tame Impala will then make a return to the U.S. with a handful of stops across the country. The group will also take on this year's Bonnaroo on June 9 as well as BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! on June 14 and 15.
