Parcels have been steadily stomping the ground over the last year or so, but now it seems they might’ve struck gold. ‘Overnight’ is the latest single to come from these up-and-comers, and with the help of Daft Punk, it’s sure to be the sound of the summer.
With the sketchy guitars and moody atmosphere plucked straight from the comedown of ‘Get Lucky’, Parcels take these tools of success to craft a song that adds a needed touch of sunshine to the night sky. Smooth, silky riffs create an instrumental that bubbles and boils over with sharp breaths, and the soft vocals seem to push it onto hot skin. It’s a song designed to keep the feel good vibes going, and adds a particularly sexy undertone to it too.
‘Overnight’ is a song that should appear on numerous Summer playlists, and should be celebrated as one of the songs of the year. It’s simple in execution, but wraps up the airwaves in a way that tantalises the eardrums. Parcels are surely going to be a hit, but that was always going to be inevitable.
