Tame Impala “Let It Happen”

This is definitely my favourite track on the new Tame Impala album and like the record, it takes the band into a new, slicker direction. Juxtaposing their signature dream-like, psychedelic sound we follow a modern tale of stress and anxiety. A rushed, panicked man moves from airports to hotels, struggling to keep up and ultimately loses his battle in an epic airplane scene. It’s a dark story but is told with a playful touch and art direction that’s very reminiscent of Michel Gondry’s work. Directed by David Wilson, who is quickly becoming one of the most respected storytellers amongst music video fans.
