Having already surpassed 65 million streams, sold out sizeable shows worldwide (including a date at London’s Koko, on top of touring with Phoenix), made their US TV debut on Conan andc ollaborated with Daft Punk (who co-wrote and produced “Overnight”), Parcels are a band ascending. Ahead of their debut full length, they’ve already emerged as one of the most vibrant and vital new bands around with a truly global and musically-diverse audience. Louie Swain (synth), Patrick Hetherington (synth), Noah Hill (bass), Anatole Serret (drums) and Jules Crommelin (guitar) are schoolmates from Byron Bay. 3 years ago, they made the big leap of moving to Berlin, finding in one Europe’s most creative cities the prospects that equaled their ambition. Parcels’ early sound suitably reflects this ability to travel, and transform yourself: following an eclectic thread from The Beach Boys and Chic through to yacht rock heroes like Steely Dan, all the while blending elements of electronica, funk and tirelessly-drilled live musicianship into classic but contemporary pop. It’s in their Berlin exile –and its long history of creative breakthroughs –that the alchemy which makes Parcels so refreshing first crystallized.
