It’s been a whirlwind few months for Parcels following the release of their highly acclaimed single ‘Overnight’ which was produced and co-written with the planet’s most gifted robots Daft Punk. Hailing from the sun-drenched shores of Byron Bay and now based in Berlin, the electronic five-piece have recently played Glastonbury, The Great Escape, Dot to Dot and secured supports with Phoenix, Two Door Cinema Club and Air.
Parcels are Jules Crommelin, Patrick Hetherington, Noah Hill, Anatole Serret and Louie Swain. The 19 year-old’s first caught the eye of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel Homem Christo of Daft Punk at a Paris club in 2016. Following their chart-topping partnership with The Weeknd, and previous collaborations with major artists including Nile Rodgers, Pharrell Williams, and Kanye West, Daft Punk have now elected to add a brand new name to a stellar list. ‘Overnight’ is a timeless statement of bighearted mentorship and of youthful inspiration, an effortless cut of summer bliss that shines with innate musicianship and unfurls its refined groove into the mellowest of nights.
After their relocation to Berlin, the lives of the five Byron Boys was turned upside down. Since then they’ve been signed to Parisian tastemakers Kitsuné Musique, played hundreds of shows worldwide including appearances at Woodford Folk Festival and Falls Festivalat the end of 2016, sold out headline shows across Europe, as well as performed at key Eurpopean festivals including Paleo, Citadel and Les Eurockéennes. They´ve released only their debut EP ‘Hideout’ but have already received millions of listeners and reached an expansive Global audience. In ‘Overnight’ they took the world by surprise by releasing a collaboration with robot megastars Daft Punk, entering a whole new realm of hype, exposure and international praise.
Through all of this chaos however their light hearted attitude has remained, as well as a tight connection to their sun soaked homeland. And what better excuse to escape the harsh German winter than to come party at home. Their live set is consistently energetic, the young musicians best deliver their infectious confidence and contagious beat. Don’t miss their fun, explosive and emotive live set this January.
