Watch Tame Impala’s “The Less I Know The Better” Video

The gorilla mascot gets the girl.

"The Less I Know The Better" is jangly disco: the rhythm section lays down a crisp groove; Kevin Parker's falsetto and a liquid guitar fly above the beat. The song's narrator is love-lorn, petulant, and inept at romance. At the end he breaks down in frustration. Is this what you want, is this who you are? I was doing fine without ya, 'til I saw your eyes turn away from mine.
