Our first album had to be self produced and it had to be the truest representation of us, as people, as musicians and as a group that we had ever offered before. Parcels started for us as a new experimentation in sound and image but after the five of us moved across the world together, its initial ideas and boundaries quickly lost importance. We had always played in bands together but clearly this was our first real band in that it was inseparable from the experience we were living together. This was now our identity, we’re a band in the older sense of the word.
Parcels are an Australian electropop band composed of Louie Swain (keyboards), Patrick Hetherington (keyboards), Noah Hill (bass), Anatole "Toto" Serret (drums), and Jules Crommelin (guitar). The band formed in 2014 while at high school in Byron Bay, Australia, and are now based in Berlin, Germany. Parcels are signed to the French label Kitsuné. Their single "Overnight", released on 21 June 2017, was produced by Daft Punk, who heard them at their first performance in France.
Parcels feels miraculously out-of-place, conjuring ghosts of music movements past. My feelings about this album have gone from immediate love, to boredom, and then now settling on very much liking it. I find myself returning to it and seeking out their earlier tunes as well. I will always love Daft Punk and this album really does sound like a RAM Parcels seem to have all the necessary components in place that will surely blast them to quick, widespread commercial success. 89. Considering that Daft Punk produced a single Overnight last year, it was no doubt that part of the inspiration was carried foward to Parcels’ debut.

Remarkably, ‘Parcels’ manages to be an album that transcends elements from across pop history while still sounding remarkably fresh. The shimmering disco tendencies of the ‘70s turn ‘Lightenup’ and ‘IknowhowIfeel’ into dance floor smashes, as influences from ‘80s pop titans like Hall & Oates and The Cars rear their heads on gooey cuts like ‘Withorwithoutyou’ and ‘Yourfault’. Meanwhile, ‘Tape’ sounds like it would sit nicely on The Strokes’ underrated synth-heavy 2011 album ‘Angels’, and ‘Everyroad’ has a chunky bassline wobble in its exuberant final third.
