Originally from Byron Bay, but now based based in Berlin, Parcels are five passionate musicians whose interests cover innumerable genres ranging from folk pop to disco-funk and psych rock. Released last January, their highly anticipated debut EP, Hideout, showcased their unique brand of indie pop, featuring laid-back grooves, infectious choruses and psychedelic synths. Now Parcels are offering the perfect end-of-summer soundtrack by giving the EP a full makeover with completely reworked versions of their originals.
They invited the finest selection of producers to remix five of their tracks and, boy, are we in for a treat! From the psychedelic electro of Inagwa, a side project of Aussie band Tora, the mesmerizing rhythms of French producers L’Impératrice, the versatile electro of German duet Mouse on Mars, misty vibes brought by Helsinki-based Disco Despair, and an electronic ballad courtesy of Dutch trio Kraak & Smaak, the Hideout Remixed EP is an incredibly diverse collection, demonstrating the eclectic aesthetic of Parcels’ universe.
As their latest offering is being acclaimed as “rapturous retro-pop” (The Guardian), the young musicians best deliver their unbridled energy on stage. Following a European Tour supporting Two Door Cinema Club, Parcels embarked on a summer festival tour with shows at Le Printemps de Bourges, Great Escape, Dot to Dot Festival, We Love Green, and more.

Rising Australian multi-talented artist Golden Vessel (born Max Byrne) is back with “Shoulders”, the latest preview of his second EP. Released in collaboration with Exist Recordings (a label founded by none other than The Kite String Tangle), “Shoulders” sees the Brisbane-based producer venture further into soundscapes mixing sultry R&B and future electronica with a sprinkling of hip-hop edge.
Influenced by Flume, James Blake or Chet Faker, Byrne’s smooth blend of bouncy down-tempo beats and wonky synths create the perfect backdrop for some seriously infectious vocals provided by fellow Brisbanites, and accomplished artists in their own right, Elkkle and Mallrat. A match made in heaven if there ever was one!
