Parcels cover the October 2021 issue of NME Australia magazine

The new issue also features Pond, Banoffee, ‘No Time To Die’ and much more

Parcels are the latest band to grace the cover of NME Australia magazine.

The Berlin-via-Byron Bay band dig deep and continue their restless search for home on breathtaking new album ‘Day/Night’. Speaking to NME’s Thomas Smith, frontman Jules Crommelin says that their latest project “was a part of us trying to come back to nature with the whole day and night thing, but also a way of showing people how important that is: to come back to nature”.

“It feels like a reaction to that [our 2018 self-titled debut album]. This is what we needed this time: stillness and silence,” Crommelin adds.
