The latest video off the rank for Tame Impala centres around Is It True, another from Kevin Parker’s 2020 album The Slow Rush.
The promo’s release comes with a milestone reached for Tame Impala’s previous album Currents as it’s certified with Platinum status in the U.S. thanks to sales of more than 2.5 million worldwide. “Things have changed in Parker’s life since Currents, which was nominally a break-up album, the most obvious of those being his recent marriage to Sophie Lawrence,” Live4ever’s Slow Rush review reads.
“Signs of the obsessive letting life get in the way are not always obvious however, instead the singer ponders whether he’s still relevant at the grand old age of 34 on the lustrous It Might Be Time, while he chooses to re-examine his relationship with his father (who died in 2009) on the sober Posthumous Forgiveness.”
“Or maybe there are: the epic closer One More Hour contains the line, “Whatever I’ve done, I did for love”, but it’s the album’s most stripped back moment, sometimes existing on a single keyboard phrase repeated over and over, the stop-start tensions revealing a coarser edge amongst the polished multi-tracking.”
