Berlin-based Parcels today announce their self-titled debut album will be released on October 12th via Kitsuné/Because Music. The quintet have also shared their new single and video for Lightenup. Like their previous releases, Lightenup lives and breathes the funky sound of disco music.
Parcels was written in Berlin, the band’s home of choice. Originally from Australia, Louie Swain (synths), Patrick Hetherington (synths), Noah Hill (bass), Anataole Serret (percussion) and Jules Crommelin (guitar) moved to the German capital 3 years ago and have since gained an international fan base. After Daft Punk discovered them in 2016, they took the boys to the studio to collaborate on their single Overnight.
Soft Cell are back with a brand new song, ‘Northern Lights’, their first in 15 years. The synthpop icons, comprised of Marc Almond and Dave Ball, have released the new track ahead of their farewell show at London’s O2 Arena next month. Almond described the track as “a celebration of our roots in northern soul.” The track’s lyrics also refer the Northern Soul movement – including references to Stoke’s iconic Golden Torch club and Manchester’s Twisted Wheel.
Black Honey recently shared their disco-tinged dancefloor beauty ‘Midnight’ and have now gone the extra mile and given us a cracking new video to enjoy.
Surrounded by the grime and gruesome scenes of London’s nightlife the band, namely Izzy, take to the streets and clubs of the capital and encounter everything you might expect from a night out in the Big Smoke. Expect sequins, shine and the suspected debauchery that goes with it.
The clip is deeply set in its retro-look and at over 6 minutes long it has a long time to sink its teeth into the style. Get ready for a night on the tiles courtesy of Black Honey.
‘Midnight’ is taken from Black Honey’s self-titled debut album, released next month.
After their hit tune ‘Territory’ last year, The Blaze are back with their second single of 2018, ‘She’.

The duo have also announced the release of their debut album, Dancehall, which will be out on the Animal 63 label on 7th September.
