Parcels is a Berlin-via-Byron Beach, Australia five-piece band with a 70s flair that draws influence from the likes of Steely Dan, Marvin Gaye, The Whitest Boy Alive, and Toto. They made their first big splash with their 2017 single “Overnight,” a collaboration with Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo that developed after the dance music legends happened to catch their first show in Paris after signing with the French label and fashion house Maison Kitsuné. Their latest LP Day/Night was recorded back home in Australia, inspired by the natural world’s ebb and flow with the sun and the moon; it splits the difference between electro-pop and disco-soul.
