Parcels 

@ the Independent

On Wednesday, October 17, 2018

An Australian band with a French touch. With Anatole ''Toto'' Serret (percussions) and Jules Crommelin (guitar)... not French but it really sounds like they have French connexions somewhere in their history. And with their collaboration with Daft Punk. Listen to Overnight or Tieduprightnow. So California style, isn't it ?
