Midweek Music Video: Feels Like We Only Go Backwards by Tame Impala

1

Go back in multicolor time with this trippy music video and channel your inner Pollock, Basquiat and Haring in one sitting.

Tame Impala keeps our ears buzzing and eyes rolling back in their sockets with another psychedelic video. “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards” is a track from their 2012 album “Lonerism.” The video for the song is full of colorful montages of images and exploding animations that just fit the music and lyrics.

This music video indeed feels like it only goes backwards with recurring images and patterns. It also like reminiscing paintings of famous artists like Jackson Pollock’s paint drops and splatters, Jean Michel-Basquiat’s bold graffiti-like swings of his brush and Keith Haring’s chunky lines that form intricate mazes of chalk and paint.

But don’t forget the band. Tame Impala brings their signature sounds of alternating effects and psychedelic tinges. Go ahead and watch the music video. Let Tame Impala tap into your consciousness with every warping image and mixed faint howling of guitars and vocals.
