This week’s download comes from the Australian band Parcels and their new album “Day/Night.” You have seven days to download the song “Somethinggreater.”
From the press release:
Parcels have today released their ambitious second album ‘Day/Night’. The highly-anticipated album comprises two whole, standalone records: Day and Night. It is a vast leap forwards in scope and sound from the Australian 5-piece’s 2018 debut album and is out now via Because Music, available to stream and download digitally and also on double vinyl.
In their recent cover feature on Parcels, NME dubbed ‘Day/Night’ “a marvellous, fascinating collection of songs […] a record of epic proportions, spritely and serious at the same time; the sound of a collective pouring out their heart and soul into a record of real beauty”. The shoot for the cover feature saw Parcels styled exclusively in Gucci’s newest line. See here for the interview and shoot with NME.
Parcels are celebrating the release of ‘Day/Night’ with a string of sold-out shows, which included a joyous performance at London’s Islington Assembly Hall earlier this week.
Additional tracks unveiled from Day/Night ahead of album release include ’Theworstthing’, ‘Somethinggreater’, ‘Comingback’ and ‘Free’. Vast and cinematic in sound and layered lyrical themes, Day/Night channels western folk and classic pop, resulting in a new sound the band describes as their new-fangled cowboy disco sound. The record tackles opposing topics of identity vs anonymity, family vs independence, belonging vs isolation and nostalgia vs projection; the self and the shadow self. The album is cyclical – a perfect loop from end to its start – echoing the albums’ theme of inner and outer self and the constant turning of the natural world.
