Best Bands of 2010 HUMMINGBIRD AWARD: #17 Tame Impala

Best Bands of 2010 HUMMINGBIRD AWARD: #17 Tame Impala

I love Dungen. I loved the classic 70’s heavy deep sound of classic Sabbath. I actually enjoyed the Swedish, who the hell needs English when the music surrounding the vocals were this good. So when listening to Perth’s own Tame Impala this year, I couldn’t help but notice the similarities. Where Dungen may be more Sabbath, Tame Impala takes off with heavier beats, a more stylistic approach to the vocals. Oh and they do sing in English. We love Tame Impala here at NBD.

Vitals:
Hometown: Perth, AU
Members: Kevin Parker, Dominic Simper, Jay Watson, Nick Allbrook
Sonic Soulmates: Dungen, Black Sabbath, Grizzly Bear
Track of the Year:
“Runway, Houses, City, Clouds”
