PARCELS SHARES NEW SINGLE
HIDEOUT EP DUE JANUARY 27 VIA MAISON KITSUNÉ
Parcels are back today to share the third single from their forthcoming EP, Hideout, due out January 27th on Maison Kitsune. “Older” is a step away from the band’s usual driving, disco feel and looks to a more intimate side of the five piece. Playful guitar and bass lines paired with lyrics full of self doubt make the track a bittersweet contrast. A desperate mood can be felt over the breezy tune, leaving an uncertainty that is worth revisiting.
Check out “Older” above and stay tuned for the full details on the forthcoming EP.
Praise for Parcels:
“Prepare to want to dance the way nobody has danced since flares were invented”
“Parcels’ avant pop is wholly engrossing yet difficult to define.”
“inspires daydreams of Daft Punk frolicking through colourful 70s roller discos.”
“Parcels make slick, funky synth pop morsels that melt in your ears”
“begs to be played on repeat”
– THE LINE OF BEST FIT
Parcels is Patrick Hetherington, Louie Swain, Noah Hill, Anatole Serret and Jules Crommelin. The five piece formed in 2014 during their final year of high school and recorded their first, self-produced EP. Well received in Australia and Europe the debut represented the first recording ever produced by its members, where wide synth soundscapes and an electronic rhythm section meet lively guitars and five part vocal harmony. Shortly after their first release, Parcels left Australia for Berlin where they currently reside. On stage, their live set is consistently energetic: a different, more organic spin on their tracks provides an electronic disco channeling the soulfulness of early Chic. Captivating, vital, and musically impressive.
