With a sound as defined and infectious as Berlin-via-Byron-Bay five-piece PARCELS, it's no wonder that they've quickly shot to international acclaim over the last couple of years. From working with Daft Punk in 2017, to releasing their self-titled debut LP in 2018, and playing sold-out shows right across the planet along the way, their nostalgic blend of funk, soul and disco has rightly captured the attention of ears everywhere.
With the boys coming back to Australia for the New Year, they played a quick run of shows while they were home, and we were lucky enough to catch up with the globetrotters before they jet off to Tokyo & Seoul, kicking off a solid eight month run of international dates.
Our friend James Simpson caught up with the guys while they were in Sydney to take a couple of snaps for our Shot For Sneakers portrait series. Check out the full gallery below!
