Australian electropop five-piece Parcels have shared a special live performance visual of their track, Free. Filmed in Wilyakali, Australia, the clip highlights the small town, diverting attention to supporting local rural business.
Speaking of the live visual, the band share: “Silverton was high on the list. Population 50, Silverton is small town hosting only a couple of dusty streets, a few donkeys, a pub, a bakery, and endless desert surroundings. On the fifth phone call Anatole finally reached Peter, owner of the Silverton Hotel. He didn’t really understand why we wanted to come, or how we were going to make it that far inland, but said we were welcome and that ‘he’d believe it when he saw it’. What we didn’t understand over the phone, or from the Google images, was the calming pace and kind-hearted spirit which the town exudes. Driving away on that dusty road we couldn’t shake the feeling that the people of Silverton are as close to feeling ‘Free’ as people might ever be.”
The Wilyakali or Wiljaali are an Australian aboriginal tribal group of the Darling River basin in Far West New South Wales, Australia. Their traditional lands centred on the towns of Broken Hill and Silverton and surrounding country. Playing live at the Silverton Hotel all started with a phone call between drummer Anatole and a man who introduced himself as Peter Price.
