Lily & The Parlour Tricks dive deep into the well of musical Americana and resurface with a wild stylistic brew. Lily’s songwriting influences range from The Andrews Sisters to Nine Inch Nails to 19th century murder songs, with roots planted firmly in the smoky back room of early rock n’ roll. "Combining dissonant guitar riffs with angelic vocal harmonies, Lily & The Parlour Tricks are the perfect combo of pretty and gritty... the band has a mysterious depth that holds audiences transfixed through their salty and sweet set." (The Wild Magazine, 2012). The Tricks' 2011 EP was recorded live to tape at the legendary Daptone Studios in Brooklyn, and they are currently hard at work on a followup album with an altogether different kind of sound, recorded at The Magic Shop in SoHo. With their soaring harmonies, raucous attitude and "deadly sex appeal" (Aesthetes Anonymous, 2012), these “friendly sh*t-talkers” keep their audiences dancing and howling for more.
