Parcels share video for new single ‘Lightenup’
Berlin-based Australian five-piece band Parcels have just unveiled their brand new song Lightenup, alongside a striking new video. I am loving the funky guitar lines of this disco-infused single. It's suuper groovy and addictive. I just feel like dancing and the visuals, directed by Marie Schuller, are stunning and catches a viewer's attention from start to finish. It explores the seductive allure of power, and was inspired by iconography ranging from Helmut Newton to the Guy-Bourdin-shot sleeve to Bozz Scaggs’ ‘Middle Man’ album. Watch it below!



Lightenup follows their sultry, disco-infused single Tieduprightnow, and both are taken from their highly anticipated, self-titled album set to arrive on October 12th via Kitsuné / Because Music.

Speaking about the new single the group said it takes from ,
disco and funk and classic grooving music. And it was an important song to us because the lyrics come from the voice of the band. Usually the lyrics are personal. But these ones are really coming from the band. That’s the most representative of us.

Ambitious, infectious, and marking the arrival of a genre-crossing new band, Parcels’ debut album is the brainchild of five young guys barely in their twenties, who nonetheless have appeared as if beamed from another planet. Louie Swain (synth), Patrick Hetherington (synth), Noah Hill (bass), Anatole Serret (drums) and Jules Crommelin (guitar) are schoolmates from Byron Bay. 3 years ago, they made the big leap of moving to Berlin, finding in one Europe’s most creative cities the prospects that equaled their ambition.
