Out on the Patio: The Slow Rush of Nostalgia with Tame Impala
With five years between albums, Tame Impala is back with The Slow Rush. Kevin Parker joins Mon to chat all things temporal. Looking back on the last few years, he has experimented with hip-hop and took time out to DJ while writing songs. He has also seen his audience transform and evolve to encompass a much wider and diverse group. The Slow Rush dives into temporal themes of time and nostalgia and explores our relationship with them. Kevin is fascinated with nostalgia and how as humans we get lost in it for both good and bad reasons. That could mean putting on our rose-tinted glasses and romanticising the past or just obsessing over things that didn’t happen or our regrets. As for future Kevin, he is relived the album is here and is excited for his upcoming tour and travels.
