Watch Kevin Parker bring ‘Tame Impala Soundsystem’ to ‘The Tonight Show’
Kevin Parker has returned for his newest Tame Impala performance. Taking his “Tame Impala Soundsystem” to the stage at Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show, the Australian multi-instrumentalist has recruited tour mates Jay Watson and Don Simper for a live rendition of “Borderline.” Released as a single prior to the announcement of Tame Impala’s fourth studio album, the track later appeared on The Slow Rush and has seen multiple musical and lyrical revisions from Parker himself.
Set to moody spotlights and minimal interiors, the trio take up synthesizers and drum machines, adding extra flair to the single with improvisational keyboard riffs and vocal maneuvers. The latest Tame Impala showing adds to a growing collection of performances from Parker, whose recent catalog includes a Tiny Desk Concert, acoustic version of “On Track,” a Jimmy Kimmel Live performance, and more.
