Tame Impala's 'Let It Happen' music video is a woozy nightmare

Posted on

Maybe the years of touring have finally gotten to Kevin Parker and Co.

Aussie psych-rockers Tame Impala released the video for “Let It Happen” Monday and it follows a world-weary traveler through what can probably only described as the worst travel day, ever. Heart attack in the airport? Check. Blacking out mid-flight? Yep. Waking up in a sweaty panic in your hotel? Ew, but yes. Hey, is his sandwich yelling at him from its tray table? Yikes! And suddenly he’s hurtling through the air, towards whatever abyss waits. Which is to say, Parker’s dreamy delivery of the lines, “All this running around, bearing down on our shoulders,” takes on a whole new level of urgency.

“Let It Happen” is off the group’s third, acclaimed album, Currents and the group returns to the U.S. this fall for a short tour; dates are listed below.

Oct 02: Austin, TX @ Austin City Limits

Oct 05: Upper Darby, PA @ Tower Theatre

Oct 06: New York, NY @ Radio City Music Hall

Oct 07: New York, NY @ Terminal 5

Oct 09: Austin, TX @ Austin City Limits
