Gigwise

Implementing their already successful sonic formula alongside a completely new array of sounds to choose from, ‘Day/Night’ celebrates individuality and creativity.

Northern Transmissions

It’s an epic undertaking that Parcels successfully execute. Whether it’s disco hopefulness or somber jazziness, they reach you in all your feelings in this record.

NME

This daring album sets yet another high bar for this band, and leaves us itching to find out where they’ll go next.

Loud and Quiet

Rather than plucking out specific songs to play on repeat or extract into separate playlists, Day/Night feels more like a case of sitting down and buckling up for the ride; but its transcendental, multi-faceted disposition suggests that maybe the journey is better than the destination.

What a magnificent album! Day/Night is effortlessly smooth, incredibly mesmerizing, and overall a highly enjoyable listening experience, front-to-back.

Disc 1 or the day part of the album is bubbly, bright in sound, and at moments unbelievably beautiful, such as the Disc 1 closer "Outside" which absolutely blew me away. The day part could represent many things, eg the optimistic child part of us, the masked extroverted exterior we display, the honeymoon phase of a relationship, a ... read more
