These Aussie-Berliners had their 2017 single Overnight produced by none other than Daft Punk. Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo were in the audience at Parcels’ very first Paris gig, liked what they heard, and then invited the band to their studio. Which, if you’ve heard Parcels, makes sense. They could be the hipster offsprings of Nile Rodgers. Almost everyone of their infectious disco-pop hits sound like anthems to never-ending summer nights. At least they make you smile and want to dance, and that’s good enough. Or, as the Evening Standard wrote: “Parcels are delivering something you may not have realised you’ve been missing.”
Last year Parcels dropped their self-titled debut album and made quite a success at the Popaganda festival in Stockholm. When you see them at Way Out West this summer, you’ll understand why.
