The robots return and bring an Australian five-piece out of obscurity.
Daft Punk may not be the most visible duo in music these days, reemerging from the smoke and gold dust of their Random Access Memories campaign two years later to assist The Weeknd on the bookend cuts to his Starboy odyssey. But the robots appear to be back to their disco-pop program.
A few weeks back it was revealed that the entirety of the upcoming Arcade Fire album Everything Now would be co-produced and co-written by Daft Punk (government names: Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter.) And now they’ve brought an Australian five-piece, Parcels, out of obscurity by blessing them with a slick production reminiscent of their own dabblings in Chic territory. “Overnight” is precisely the “Get Lucky” sequel summer 2017 needs, and it’s a moment for which the Berlin transplants have been ready, releasing their unshakeable five-track Hideout EP earlier this year via Kitsune.
