The album marks Tame Impala’s venture deeper into the ever-growing world of electronic music, but doesn’t stray too far from their rock roots. The band dropped a number of singles leading up to the July 17, 2015 release date, including the groovy slow jam ‘Cause I’m A Man, and the upbeat, dancy Disciples, the latter of which frontman Kevin Parker publicized via his Reddit AMA. Currents was almost universally lauded by critics, and was nominated for Best Alternative Music Album at the 2016 Grammy Awards.

Tame Impala "Currents" album cover. This article originally appeared on The Creators Project Australia. Kentucky-based designer Robert Beatty is the mastermind behind the album (and single) artwork for Tame Impala’s much-anticipated Currents, released last week. How do your visuals and Tame Impala’s music go ent each other? I think both Tame Impala and I use elements of things we like from the past and personalise them without making art that is a pastiche or retro. We are also both are often labeled as being "psychedelic", but I think that word is overused and doesn't really mean what people think it does most of the time.
After two Tame Impala albums that centered on Kevin Parker's withdrawal from society, he has entered the stream of life on Currents. And he's lonelier than ever. In this sense, the album reimagines and expands Tame Impala's relationship to album rock-like Loveless or Kid A or Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, it's the result of a supernaturally talented obsessive trying to perfect music while redefining their relationship to album-oriented rock. Currents is the result of many structural changes, most of which exchange maximalist, hallucinatory swirl for intricacy, clean lines.

Currents marks our third Tame Impala outing, and on it, Kevin Parker brings us an act we haven't seen yet under this moniker: one that is confident, unflinching, and sleeps soundly when the sun goes down. Parker does this both lyrically and musically. The record may be filled to the gills with confessional interpretations of past, present, and future, but underneath the surface of the water is a pitch-perfect psych-pop wonderland that you can lose yourself in for days. Right off the bat on Currents, Parker ensures the listener that his next outing is not a musical or emotional rehash in the slightest. Album opener "Let It Happen" is almost eight minutes of unnerving confidence in the face of a fight or flight scenario. All this running around, trying to cover my shadow", Parker sings. Here, he denies all the anxieties of trying to assertively obtain happiness rather than letting it come to you naturally.
