Back to the 60s with Lily and The Parlour Tricks, Live at Cameo 08.14

Back to the 60s with Lily and The Parlour Tricks, Live at Cameo 08.14

There’s nothing wrong with going retro if you’ve found a good road (and a nice map for that matter). And it seems that cherry-lipped New Yorker Lily Claire (alongside with her band mates, who are hidden under ‘The Parlour Tricks’ title) can handle a trip in a time machine not only without any sickness but with a spark. Most of the times the band travels right to the early 60s (before the underground-psychedelic "contaminating" period) to play with the decade's feel-good attitude - the best number is ‘Oh, Boy’, that brings The Chordettes’ ‘Mr. Sandman’ to mind. Then there’s ‘Gigolo’, that sounds like Lily Allen covering some forgotten Motown’s classic. A moment of sadness comes with ‘The Murder Song’, a tune that your parents could easily have danced to at their prom night. But don’t expect any dust on Lily’s debut EP (set to come out this fall) – this girl knows how to return to 2010 just in time to make her vintage tunes sound fresh. Lily and The Parlour Tricks will be playing at Cameo on August 14. - Mikhael Agafonov
