Lily & the Parlour Tricks Play Mercury Lounge Tomorrow Night

August 11th, 2014

Playing a kind of retro soul that Spotify calls “vintage pop for the future,” the NYC six-piece Lily & the Parlour Tricks—Lily Claire (lead vocals), Darah Golub (backing vocals), Morgane Moulherat (backing vocals), Brian Kelsey (bass), Terry Moore (drums) and Angelo Spagnalo (guitar)—employ delicate three-part harmonies layered over a healthy dose of hard-driving bass and swaggering guitar that’s best experienced live. Speaking of which, Lily & the Parlour Tricks (above, performing their latest single, “Requiem” for Audiotree Live) play a hometown show tomorrow night at Mercury Lounge. And another local band, the blues-rock quartet Blue & Gold, opens the show.
