Nach erfolgreicher Support-Tour mit PHOENIX, jetzt die Debut-EP als VINYL ONLY!!! In early 2017, the young Australians from Parcels may have only released a couple of tracks and yet they are already being compared to « humanized Daft Punk [who]would decide to jam along with Steely Dan and Frank Ocean ». The self-produced Hideout EP was created over two years. What remains in early 2017 is a unified piece, an EP that is essentially pop but which shines in a unique, exciting and down right groovy light. As a first completed release from Parcels, the Hideout EP covers a lot of ground. Tracks range from driving electro thumps to softer pop taps. But what is clear in the end is that Parcels bring a unique brand of pop music and deliver it with infectious and emotive dance : « Already the musicians have made a statement with their harmonious feel-good funk-pop. » (The 405)
Parcels are a funk-pop group from Byron Bay Australia, sounding like a unique blend of contemporary electronica and matured funk disco, where wide synth soundscapes and an electronic rhythm section meet spirited guitars and five-part vocal harmony. Their debut EP 'Hideout' released last January, is hailed by medias as '2017's soundtrack', featured in the The Guardian or Metro News. The audience is convinced as well: Parcels records today 25 million streams. But what is clear in the end is that Parcels bring a unique brand of pop music and deliver it with infectious and emotive dance songs. Overnight is the exclusive new song from Australian phenomenon Parcels, conceived in tight collaboration with the planet's most gifted robots: Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem Christo of Daft Punk. Following collaborations with major artists such as Nile Rodgers, Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, and Giorgio Moroder and more recently their chart-topping partnership with R&B star The Weeknd, Daft Punk elected to add a brand-new name to a stellar list. The B-side is an exclusive stripped-down version of the "summery banger" (Alice Levine BBC 1) recorded during a Spotify Session in London.
