Parcels

Five Australians from Berlin, who are crazy about Fleetwood Mac and look like the cast of ‘Saturday Night Fever’. It doesn’t get much crazier than that. Parcels’ first musical influences were folk and metal, until they discovered Steely Dan and heard Nile Rodgers, the guitarist from Chic, do his thing on ‘Random Access Memories’ by Daft Punk. Parcels is the sum total of all that. Glossy pop that makes you want to dance. The group is in the right creative environment too. Their logo was designed by Alex Cortès, the man who came up with Daft Punk’s helmets. And their music is released by the hip Parisian labels Because and Kitsuné. The titles always look a bit odd: for example ‘Gamesofluck’ or ‘Somethinggreater’. There’s a simple explanation. ‘The space bar on my computer is broken,’ says keyboard player Patrick Hetherington. Typical.
