AnnenMayKantereit -German rock music group- and Parcels -Australian band- recorded a funky cover of Kylie Minogue’s “Can’t get you out of my head” in Tropenhaus botanical garden in Berlin bringing fresh spring feelings into the dreary winter.
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.
Australian electro-pop band Parcels just released their latest track ‘TIEDUPRIGHTNOW’ and its accompanying music video, the follow-up to their breakout single ‘Overnight’. Forming in high school back in 2014, the five-piece band quickly found success late last year. ‘Overnight,’ which was co-produced by Daft Punk, enjoyed unforeseen success in the northern hemisphere, surpassing 50 million streams online. The band also began to build their live reputation too, with a string of popular sold out gigs.
‘TIEDUPRIGHTNOW’ is an upbeat second track with a strong disco feel, and looks destined to be a summer anthem.
It’s a big deal to collaborate with Daft Punk for anyone, let alone an emerging indie band out of regional NSW. After making the bold decision to move to Berlin, unbeknownst to them, Daft Punk caught their high energy disco infused pop set in a sweaty basement in Paris. So impressed, the titans of dance music invited Parcels to a secret location in France to co-write and produce ‘Overnight’. Parcels’ urgent pace and funky guitar riffs have always drawn comparison to Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories, so really it’s a match made in heaven. Tonight in concert at Vida Festival.
