“Tieduprightnow” by Parcels

Parcels recently released the new single “Tieduprightnow”, out now on Kitsuné / Because Music. This follows a busy 2017 for the Berlin-based Australian five-piece, who have sold out sizeable shows worldwide including a tour with Phoenix). Parcels also made their US TV debut on Conan for “Overnight,” their single co-written and produced by Daft Punk. Currently completing work on their debut album, Parcels have confirmed early festival appearances at the likes of Shaky Knees and All Points East, with news of further live plans to follow soon.

Parcels on “Tieduprightnow”:

“We recorded ‘Tieduprightnow’ in a Berlin studio; we had just lived out 6 months of German winter without even a hint of sun. But during this session it was the start of spring and the first rays began to peak through our window. The video is a homage to our roots. We all liked the idea of playing with the Australian stereotype, how the world views Australia and how we fit into that. We drive through our original hometown Byron Bay, the quintessential Australian surf paradise, and observe what it means to be Australian.“

Director Beatrice Pegard also comments on the video:

“Northern NSW and Byron Bay are coastal areas that are currently being destroyed by profit-motivated policies and lobbies, and where marine life and ecosystems are disappearing at an alarming rate. The Australian lifestyle as we know it, the joys of summer, of surfing and living by the beach would not be much without its marine ecosystem and wildlife.”

If a chance encounter with the world’s most reclusive robots offered the band a surprise break, “TIEDUPRIGHTNOW” more than confirms Parcels’ early promise as one of the most vibrant and vital new bands around. Already building a truly global, musically-diverse audience, Parcels are still-just-20-year-olds Louie Swain (keyboards), Patrick Hetherington (keyboards), Noah Hill (bass), Anataole Serret (percussion) and Jules Crommelin (guitar).
