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.

Parcels are a funk-pop group from Byron Bay Australia conceived in mid 2014. During the final stretch of high school, Patrick Hetherington, Louie Swain, Noah Hill, Anatole Serret and Jules Crommelin forged a tight musical bond, spending their time between bedroom studios and dimly lit garages recording their first, self-produced EP. Shortly after this first release all five members left their coastal Australian hometown with a one-way ticket to Europe’s hub of musical inspiration, Berlin. Now officially signed to Parisian label Kitsuné, Parcels are pleased to unveil their new single “Anotherclock”.
This new single follows their breakout track “Herefore”, which formed part of an EP with remixes back in spring. Combining vintage and contemporary influences, Parcels create a unique blend of contemporary electronica and matured funk disco.
