Last month on SNL, Tame Impala debuted thier comeback single ‘Patience’ as well as a previously unreleased song called ‘Borderline.’
Parker had previously admitted that he doesn’t like to play unreleased songs live, saying: “the first time people hear it is the kind of recorded glory, like the premeditated thing that I’ve spent two years on – rather than being half-drunk bashing it out on stage, you know, hitting clanger notes and stuff.”
Reviewing ‘Patience’, the bands first single in four years, NME wrote: “Despite the vintage influences – traces of The Temptations, Todd Rundgren, The Trammps, and even slight hints of ABBA all linger at the heart of ‘Patience’ – Tame Impala’s abandoned dance floor still looks forward; Parker’s crystal clear production pulls it into the 21st Century…
“…[It’s also] a hopeful song; sticking to the expression you believe in, and shutting out the naysayers will ultimately reap the rewards that cash being flung at you just cannot buy. And if Tame Impala’s stadium-ready return is anything to go by, it pays to stick to your guns. Patience, at the end of it all, is the greatest virtue.”
