Okay. I’m going to put my head above the parapet and say that ‘Overnight‘ by Parcels will be the anthem of summer 2017. And if it isn’t, it bloody well ought to be.
Australian band Parcels aren’t particularly well-known in the UK at the moment. That is all set to change with the release of this single. ‘Overnight’ was produced by Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo – aka Daft Punk. There’s no denying that the two French legends contribute to the magic made available for your ears here.
There will be those that accuse this of simply being a re-hash of ‘Get Lucky’, Daft Punk’s smash from 2013. Ignore these people – you don’t need that kind of negativity in your life. It’s abundantly clear if you check out Parcels’ Hideout EP from earlier this year that the vibe of chilled music for the dancefloor with Nile Rogers-style choppy guitars is still Parcels. No doubt that’s why it’s credited to Parcels – even if a Daft Punk credit in the name might grab people’s attention more immediately.
It’s a genius piece of pop music, for the heart and the feet. You’ll hear it on the dancefloors, out of every other car window, from the mobile phones of the kids down your local park. Hell, even your local radio station with the really conservative playlist will probably get behind it (once it’s charted, obviously).
Get wrapped up in Parcels this summer.
