Parcels announce ‘Tape’ as next single with brand new video ahead of Coachella + Somerset House confirmed

Parcels just released their latest cinematic visual from their widely acclaimed self-titled debut album (Kitsuné / Because Music / Caroline), as they get set to make their Coachella debut this Saturday, April 13 and continue their headline shows throughout North America.

The five young Berlin-based Australian musicians shared “Tape” today, filmed amongst their fans at Chicago’s Lincoln Hall during their sold out winter North American tour and captures the energy of their live show. The video also features the reveal of “Penelope,” the enigmatic presence who is weaved throughout their album campaign including the Parcels album cover. Watch “Tape,” directed by the band’s creative director Carmen Crommelin
The new video comes hand in hand with the recent confirmation that Parcels will make a hugely welcome return to London on July 18th to headline one night at the Somerset House series.

With the “Tape” video, the band note: “We wanted a video that tapped into the energy we feel at a live concert. It’s another world than the record, it’s a whole different feeling and we wanted to give a taste of that.” They add, “That’s why we filmed the live scene in a one-take live scenario, from our on-stage perspective, with real fans at the show! We came on stage as an encore that night and we explained to the crowd that we wanted to capture something different with cameras. It was nerve wracking and we totally threw the crowd into the deep end. But it was a good surprise, everyone reacted with a smile, it was a real buzz. Thanks a million to everyone who was at that concert!
