There are a few layers to Tame Impala‘s latest work. “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards” has the structure of a classic rock song. There’s nothing tricky about it, but the agreeable melody is washed out with head-in-the-clouds production that’s a little more complicated, resting somewhere between modern psychedelia and a collage of vintage mish mash. The simplicity of the song itself and the depth of the production surrounding it makes “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards” an excellent track right off the bat. More importantly, it feels like one we’re going to like even more with each listen.
