Tame Impala Accused of Plagiarism

Listen to "Oceano" and "FLWOGB" side-by-side and decide for yourself

It seems like Tame Impala went backwards in time to curate inspiration for their hit single “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards”. The boys of Tame Impala are being accused by a Chilean news site of plagiarizing Argentine pop singer Pablo Ruiz’s 80s hit.

The 1989 song “Oceano” seems strikingly similar to the Lonerism single and thanks to the following YouTube video, the similarities are being brought to light. Take a listen to the audio down below and let us know what you think. Is this sheer coincidence or is this plagiarism?
