Tame Impala – “Let It Happen”

Tame Impala’s 2012 psych-meditation Lonerism cemented them as part of the upper echelon of indie rock, and rumors of their approaching third album have already begun to pop up. Well, today the band have debuted a brand new track called “Let It Happen” along with a slew of tour dates — including appearances at Coachella, Sasquatch, Governor’s Ball and Lollapalooza. Over the span of nearly eight minutes, “Let It Happen” builds on the Australian group’s psych-rock sound with more electronic flourishes, as promised. But it finishes up with a big, growly bit of guitar funk that folds in on the repeating vocal loops like origami. No word on the album title or official release date yet, but it must be coming soon.
