Aussie Electro-Pop Band Parcels Rock The Metro Theatre

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.

Gay Music Artist Rocki Mara Drops Halloween-Themed Music Video

Following the release of “Your Body Is Amazing, gay music artist Rocki Mara shows no signs of stopping and drops Halloween-themed visuals for his second single, “Step Aside”. In the new clip, he shows off his expressive, fun, and magnetic personality. Plus, he does a great job, as his singing voice matches the bouncy retro synths so well. Beyond catchy beats, this cut is heightened by his simple but powerful songwriting. Curiously, his birthday inspired him to write this song that leaves a significant message to reinforce self-esteem.

With confidence and feeling empowered, Rocki makes it clear that it is wise to step aside from judgemental people. As a matter of fact, those who are constantly criticizing others, enjoy having their false sense of moral superiority. Therefore, it’s better to ignore them and keep moving on. Taking this into account, “Step Aside” means to love yourself no matter what. This is one to play on repeat for the rest of the year.

‘s “Around The World” gets a striking 80s remix. Norwegian Producer Plextro aka Gated Reverb offers a unique spin to the original rockish song that is for sure a crowd-pleaser. One way or another, this new version is taking you on a trip to a retrofuturistic atmosphere. Undoubtedly, it’s 100% fun, infectious, and different.

I think the outcome turned out splendidly due to its Synthwave/Electro-Pop elements. The driving synths are an explosion of ecstasy and pleasure to the ears. Here, Eivind is demonstrating how versatile can sound his tracks with such a high-profile collaboration. What’s more, vocals remain untouched as they flow over booming drums daring you to dance. Besides that, its positive message that awakens in you the desire to win the world also prevails. Taking everything into account, it will be only a matter of time until you see him at the top of the game.

Experience Now This Feel-Good Jam Called “Downbeat” By Trynket

Filipino-born singer, songwriter, and filmmaker Trynket is set to make her name in the global Pop scene. What’s particularly jaw-dropping about “Downbeat” is surely its feel-good nature.

Trynket

Filipino-born singer, songwriter, and filmmaker Trynket is set to make her name in the global Pop scene. What’s particularly jaw-dropping about “Downbeat” is surely its feel-good nature. This jam sounds way different from her emotive ballad “Picture (In My Brain)”, which became her debut single and reached over 40K streams on Spotify in 2019.

Conversely, with “Downbeat” she invites you to dance without shame and move your hips like nobody’s watching. Inspired by Synthpop hits from the 80s, plus, unforgettable R&B cuts from the 90s, I think she’s artistically in the right direction. As a result, this particular blend of genres represents a breath of fresh air that is much needed in today’s saturated music industry.

Believe it or not, for the past two years Trynket has been recording upbeats tracks in Los Angeles. Since early childhood, she proved to be a natural talent. Not to mention, she composed her own songs at the age of five after starting piano lessons. Nowadays, she is blessed with a beautiful voice that fits well in any style. I can guarantee the music video for “Downbeat” is as good as the track itself. If you would like to transport yourself to a much warmer place, then I recommend you to watch it. There’s also a super fun choreography in this clip that could go viral on TikTok. Don’t miss it.

XIMXIA
‘Anywhere But Here’
is the recent project from XIMXIA (shem-shee-ya). This EP consists of 4 tracks featuring witchy Electro-Pop vibes that will captivate you the entire time. With a pinch of melodrama that appeals to emotions, these songs talk about significant changes. From breaking out with your partner to moving out of town, every tune tells an engaging story. My favorite one is called “Spaces”, I simply admire the extra energy she puts in while performing this number.

Of course, all these songs include haunting sonic elements, seductive vocals, and an irresistible dark atmosphere. Interestingly enough, classical piano pieces served as the raw material of this EP. Consequently, I bet you’ll be listening to it on repeat. Embodying everything loved about popular artists like Annie Lennox, Sinéad O’Connor, and Robyn; XIMXIA is not far behind in topping the Billboard charts. Please show her some love by streaming her brilliant EP down here. I promise she won’t disappoint you at all.
