Tame Impala could be forgiven for being sick of Beatles comparisons, but when they come from John Lennon's son it's got to be taken as a compliment. "I was speaking to Sean Lennon and he told me I sound like his dad," says Kevin Parker, Tame Impala's leader. "So I guess if anyone's going to tell me I sound like John Lennon I guess he's the one with some sort of authority on it."
Parker, who hails from Perth, is bemused by the Fab Four comparisons. "I just don't think we sound like them so much... but I've listened back to my vocals sometimes and gone, 'Oh yeah, that kind of sounds like the Beatles'. "I've never thought I sound like John Lennon in particular," he adds, which puts him at odds with the Beatle's own son. "We played some shows with him (Sean Lennon) in America... He's a trippy kind of dude," Parker says.
