Australian electropop band Parcels confirmed for Pohoda Festival

Disco is not dead.” Well, at least according to Paste magazine that used these words to praise the latest addition to Pohoda 2020 line-up – the Australian funk-pop band PARCELS. Les Inrocks magazine described them as humanized Daft Punk who decided to jam along with Steely Dan and Frank Ocean.

PARCELS bring a unique blend of contemporary electronics and matured funk-disco, wide synth soundscapes, spirited guitars and excellent vocal harmonies. Their current approach to 70s and 80s music soon found many admirers, including Daft Punk with whom they recorded the hit “Overnight”. Their eponymous debut Parcels received 5 stars out of 5 from NME magazine which called the album “cheeky, timeless and devilishly catchy”.

PARCELS members have played in an array of projects ranging from metal bands to folk ensembles, with broad spectrum of their inspirations contributing to their remarkable final sound. Shortly after the band had been founded, they moved to Berlin and it didn’t take long before they caught the eye of the Parisian label Kitsuné, and the legendary “space” duo Daft Punk with whom they recorded the song “Overnight” in spring 2017.
