PARCELS Share Video for New Tune ‘TIEDUPRIGHTNOW’
Parcels are back with a fantastic new single TIEDUPRIGHTNOW.
Imagine if The Beatles were from Australia instead of Liverpool, then that gets you some of the way to describing the unforgettable Australian five-piece, Parcels. With a Daft Punk collaboration under their belt, an appearance on Conan in the US, 50 millions streams and sold out shows including London’s KOKO, the long haired, tash adoring musicians have had a pretty good entry into the music scene.
So if you’re longing for a bit of cheeky indie pop to get you in the mood for summer then Parcels have got you covered with their new single TIEDUPRIGHTNOW, released via Kitsuné / Because Music. The hip grooving, hand clapping, harmonious track is accompanied by a gorgeous 70’s esque video, directed by Beatrice Pegard. We follow the band on a road trip through palm trees and open fields in a classic car, mixed up with bright and joyful scenes at the beach where we see surfers riding waves against a psychedelic backdrop on invisible surfboards. The production of this video is spot on, it’s classic but contemporary as it perfectly blends the old home video feel with modern day editing tricks. If you plan on having any pool parties then make sure you have this song filling the airwaves.
The band explains:
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.
Parcels are currently working on finalising their debut album which is due for release later in the year. With festival dates throughout Europe confirmed, including a date at London’s All Points East, they seem to be gearing up to completely smash 2019.
