Parcels seem constantly to be battling with modern mentalities and old school traditionalism, a tension you can feel in their debut album. They wanted an album that could sound like anything but they also wanted an album that felt like a piece, like the classic albums Parcels adore. They found their thread with a mission ‘…mainly it all came together through our desire to create meaningful pop music.’ And this search for meaningful pop music has become their core drive. ‘Disregarding the modern taboo of the word, pop music for us is something which really makes you feel. It’s pure emotion. We’re coming at this from a vaguely musical background and with varied influences, but in the end we’re just trying to unlock the raw feeling of each track. Something that everybody can feel.’ And feel it you can, as the band travels the world charming live audiences with their potent combination of being impressive musicians who give heartfelt performances with the kind of choruses that you find your self singing along too as you throw your hips around like nobody is watching. Its their new world of music, but their parents probably feel like its a little familiar.

James Hersey is an Austrian/American artist, producer, and songwriter signed to Glassnote Records in New York. His global debut EP “Pages” was released in May 2017, with its lead single “Miss You” shooting up the Spotify Global Charts in 10 countries including the US and the UK. The song was playlisted on Sirius XM Hits 1 and supported by IHeart Radio in the US , while in the UK BBC Radio1’s Annie Mac named James one of her “New Names” to watch.
“Miss You” was not, however, James’ first ever success. In 2014, he wrote a song called “Coming Over”, which he famously recorded on a Vienna rooftop. The track would be subsequently remixed by local up-and-coming DJ filous, becoming an overnight sensation with over 100M total combined streams. It would then be reworked as a feature by Kygo & Dillon Francis, and released to become Dillon Francis’ most successful track to date, climbing the US Top 40 radio charts and peaking at #1 in the US Billboard Dance Charts in June 2016. Back in Europe, James rejoined filous in Vienna and wrote the artists’ biggest single, “How Hard I Try”, which was also released as a feature and stayed in the Top 40 of Germany’s radio charts for 24 weeks in 2015 and 2016.
