ZHU / Tame Impala - "My Life"

New MusictheneedledropComment

On “My Life,” Kevin Parker completely abandons Tame Impala’s revivalist, psychedelic rock roots in favor of the sound of his collaborator, EDM producer ZHU.

Other than his distinctive voice, it’s difficult to hear any clear influence from Parker over the track. The song is slow, smooth and spacey. There’s not much to it other than slick production and a steady danceable beat.

It is not clear if the track is a precursor to upcoming work from either artist. ZHU’s last full-length album was 2016’s Generationwhy and Tame Impala’s was 2015’s Currents.
