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.

After months of relentless production Parcels finally released their debut EP Clockscared last March. Recorded in bedrooms, lounge rooms and garage studios, this Extended Play is a first taste of Parcels’ rich sound. Despite a multitude of synths and programmed elements, it retains a live, real tone with the presence of room recorded guitars, vocals and ambient layers.
