Tame Impala – ‘Cause I’m A Man’
Tame Impala have unveiled a sufficiently whacked-out new music video for Cause I’m A Man, the lead single off their forthcoming third studio album, Currents.
The 3D acid trip into surrealist wonderland was directed by LA-based artist, Weirdcore, whose CV includes the likes of Aphex Twin, The Horrors and Simian Mobile Disco.
“Visually for me, the video is like a kind of homage to Hipgnosis artwork, as I feel Tame Impala’s music is suited to that look and feel,” Weirdcore said in a statement. “Tame Impala’s new artwork was a great inspiration for the vibe of it. I happily threw in as many artwork cameos as I could from that.
“Technically the constant moving camera was an ideal way to show near non-moving scenarios, long takes and minimal editing is something I’m always into doing. This is the first 3D video I’ve made where none of the 3D was modelled for it. All assets were either bought/found/acquired/customised from various sources, so it’s a bit like a 3D collage.”
Tame Impala will be back in Australia this July as part of the Splendour In The Grass 2015 lineup.
