Local band returns to deliver the music goods

DANCE/electronic local band Parcels have come back from an extended residence in Europe for an Australian tour, ending in Byron Bay today.

We had a chat to young musicians Noah Hill and Patrick Hetherington ahead of their show.

Tell me three things you missed about your life in the Northern Rivers.

Beach, driving and iced lattes.

Three new things you have learned in Europe.

Techno is great, don't buy weed from guys in the park, and if you see a train ticket inspector, run for your life.

Is there a story behind your song Games of Luck?

That song was first written over two years ago, back at home in Australia when we were teaching ourselves about music production.

The song was finished when we got to Berlin and heard proper dance music for the first time. Berlin was a big inspiration for it.

What can we expect from the homecoming Byron Bay gig?

A huge disco party with the triumphant feeling of home in the air, packed with glitter, sweat and a lot of dancing.

What's the band's plan for 2017?

2017 is going to be busy year. We will be supporting Two Door Cinema Club on their European tour, plus we will be playing festivals all over Europe and headline shows. We will also be writing a new album.

  • At The Northern, 35 Jonson St, Byron Bay, tomorrow Thursday from 9pm. Free gig.
