Aussie Electro-Pop Band Parcels Rock The Metro Theatre

Published

Aussie Electro-Pop Band Parcels Rock The Metro Theatre
Since the release of their first studio album in 2018 aptly titled Parcels to match their band name, these guys have surged in popularity. Having formed in 2014 whilst still at high school, Parcels originate from the quiet suburban town of Byron Bay. Today, the band is now based in Berlin, Germany.

The band consists of five members: Louise Swain and Patrick Hetherington both on keyboard, Noah Hill on bass, Anatole Serret on Drums and Jules Crommelin on guitar. Having made the transition to Europe, the band has spent the past five years playing across European countries.

One of their biggest achievements came in 2017 when this five-piece band collaborated with Daft Punk for their hit single ‘Overnight.’ Later that year in June, they performed at England’s huge Glastonbury Festival. Their first television appearance came in September of that same year when they were invited to perform on the American late-night talk show ‘Conan’ hosted by Conan O’Brien. Since then, the band has even participated in television interviews in France.


The band’s musical style is best described using a fresh blend from the past with their songs easily mixing in the vibe of the 70s. Notable bands that draw a comparison include Fleetwood Mac, Steely Dan, and The Beach Boys.

The genre for their music has been categorised as a mix between electro-pop and disco soul. The band cites playing a series of different genres of music before writing their own songs as a reason for such a unique sound. Currently, the band is signed to the French record label Kitsune.

As part of their warm-up tour, and return to Australia, Parcels played to a sell-out Sydney crowd of in the Metro theatre, just by Town Hall on George Street. Following their final rendition, the crowd ecstatically cheered for an encore which the band doesn’t usually play to which the band politely obliged and sung a riveting a-Capella. Songs from their concert include many of the well-known hits from their debut album such as Comedown, Lightenup, Withorwithout, Tape, Tieduprightnow, Bemyself and of course, Overnight.


Perhaps the best feature of their songs is the way the music blends together magically. Parcels know when to ramp the audience up and when to soothe them with a slower tune. On stage, their musical performance is brilliant with high energy dancing. The band has always emphasized fashion maintaining a smart classic look with tucked-in shirts and long flowing hair. To supplement the fandom of enthusiasts, Parcels have developed a Parcels Pop Up Shop in which t-shirts and other memorabilia items may be purchased.

Whilst touring Australia, Parcels will also participate in the 2019/2020 Falls Music and Arts Festival in Byron Bay. Many of the band members enjoy playing golf and have taken this opportunity to travel to the outer shire regions to the town of Mullumbimby.

It is likely that Parcels will continue to collaborate with other artists just like that have done in the past. The best indication of this is in their credit song with the Germany rapper Dean Dawson.

Throughout each of their concerts, Parcels has been supporting local musicians. Their Metro Theatre pre-concert performance featured the Aussie band Gauci which fuse together similar elemental styles whilst maintaining very hip and new age.

According to chill out radio station, most music fans have likely never seen Daft Punk live before. Parcels are as close as you can get. The atmosphere they create is electric. For an Aussie band, they have maintained their roots and continue to listen to many of the classic tunes that have inspired them to this day.

YOVANNI
debuted one of the sexiest music videos of 2020. The eye-popping visuals for “Perfect Crime” imparts an air of intrigue and mystery aligned with the song’s lyrics. There’s no denying that his powerful vocals are his greatest asset. What’s more, the Cuban-American artist casts aside his inhibitions in order to pour his heart and soul on this infectious track. I must confess the chorus kept getting looped inside my head afterward. In any case, making memorable melodies are not easy to produce and only a few ones have the talent to turn their creative vision into reality just as YOVANNI does. Inspired by Madonna and George Michael, “Perfect Crime” is also dedicated to nostalgic fans. Enjoy it!

Emerging Band Ocean's Envy Should Be On Your Radar

If you don’t have Ocean’s Envy on your music radar, then you definitely should. The emerging band’s lead vocalist, Kurt Mantheiy along with friends Guilt Chip & PrototypeRaptor blessed us with a new song called “Fire”. In a modern Electro-Pop style, passionate vocals reflect intense emotions of a complicated relationship. Moreover, he brings to life lyrics with an energetic interpretation from start to finish. Kurt comes from a Hardcore/Punk background, so it’s quite interesting you can still feel slight rockish vibes in his composition.

Guitar riffs, drums, electronic beats, and glorious synths are a winning combination on “Fire”. Inspired by Mineral, AFI, Chromeo, Elton John, U2, and Jimmy Eat World, this fresh gem is only a taster of the band’s next single, “Liquid Misery”, which comes out in late July. Stay tuned!

Ukrainian Boyband Kazaky Drops Pride Anthem, "Fucking Beautiful"

Believe it or not, the Ukrainian boyband Kazaky is back with a pride anthem! Known for their choreographies performed in high-heels, these guys do not put aside the dramatic dance moves on the clip for “Fucking Beautiful”. Actually, they practiced social distancing while shooting these visuals due to the global pandemic. Definitely, this is a great song to add to your playlist for Pride month. Everyone was waiting for their return, so this singable jam seems to be the proper one that gets stuck in your head. In my opinion, a wise choice, can’t wait to hear more stuff from them.

Synthpop Artists Babylon Club & Andrea Arthur Drop “Dangerous” — LISTEN

Synthpop Artists Babylon Club & Andrea Arthur Drop "Dangerous"
These Synthpop artists dropped an instantly catchy song called “Dangerous”. Of course, I’m talking about Babylon Club and vocalist Andrea Arthur whose passions for 80’s music are completely reflected in their signature sound. The emerging Argentinian-Canadian project makes sure you end up listening to their vintage rhythms on repeat. Beyond the old-school vibes, they also employ emotive qualities, and that’s the reason why their debut single will capture your heart. Lyrics express feelings of desires that turn into a romantic obsession that will probably cause problems. I think this colorful retro-inspired track wouldn’t be the same without Andrea’s wonderful singing voice. In fact, she’s working on an album that is coming shortly on digital streaming platforms. Stay tuned for additional info below.

Lyrics

All that I want
Is to feel your hands on me
I know it’s wrong
After everything
Tell me what you’re waiting for
I know we’ve been here before
I know, I know, babe
You’re all that I think about
You are the one I adore
I know, I know, babe

Don’t you know I’m missing you?
Going crazy without you

That’s what makes it easy
Knowing that you need me too
You don’t have to believe me
But everything I want is you

The taste of your body
I just can’t forget
Seems like you want me
To fall in love again

Don’t you know I’m missing you?
Going crazy without you

That’s what makes it easy
Knowing that you need me too
You don’t have to believe me
But everything I want is you

I know, I know it’s dangerous
This back and forth ain’t good for us
I know, I know it’s dangerous
This back and forth ain’t good for us, no, no, no

That’s what makes it easy
Knowing that you need me too
You don’t have to believe me
But everything I want is you

Am I what you’re waiting for?
Tell me what you’re waiting for, what you’re waiting
What are you waiting for?
