Retrieved from their upcoming album ‘Day/Night’
Parcels is back with another flavor of their upcoming album Day/Night, sharing the new single “The Worstthing”.
The cut is a slow tempo for the band, a reflection on lost love and heartbreak, with keyboardist and guitarist Patrick Hetherington singing, “Here I am again / Looking for a lie / Looking for a warm way / Another glass of worthless wine“.
It comes with an accompanying music video directed by Carmen Cromelin. The clip is emotional and intimate, with close-up shots of the actors’ faces while they talk to a therapist. Check it out below.
Speaking about ‘The Worstthing’ in a statement, the band said, “Patrick had this track written straight out of his Berlin bedroom as a beautiful lo-fi slow jam demo”.
“We were later attracted to it while writing together in a rented house in the bush of Australia, where we spent all hours jamming tracks and delving deeper into the music. It quickly became clear that this was an example of some of Pat’s best songwriting ever and so the task was to honor it as simply as possible.
“Despite the groove, there was a touch of country that we were excited to work with. The result sounds too perfect for the parcel, while the song itself sounds pure and quintessentially Pat. “
It is the latest of singles released by the band this year, which include “Comingback”, “Free” and “SomethingGreater”. The songs will appear on their upcoming record ‘Day/Night’, which is slated to release on November 5 as Via Music.
