Byron-bred, Europe-based funk-poppers Parcels are on a serious roll lately, with the latest feather in their cap being their first-ever appearance on US TV by way of a live spot on Conan.
Just a couple of months after revealing that their recent single Overnight was co-written and produced by Daft Punk, the boys have taken the smooth and soulful tune to American screens with a killer live performance.
If you've not heard the track before, the French duo's influence on its shape is undeniably evident, but there's no discounting the hard work the expat five-piece have put into their craft. They deliver the song faultlessly, its harmonies and jangly rhythms easily as clean as they appear on record.
The band are over in the States at the moment for east- and west-coast shows, and they're set to return to their adopted home base next to support Phoenix — but it won't be too long before audiences back in Australia will have their turn to dance, with Parcels also announcing a summer tour here for January next year.
The run — which will come in the wake of an outing later this year for Sydney's NYE In The Park event — includes shows in in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and their old stomping ground of Byron Bay.
