Highlight Lyric: “Wasting time wondering if we can turn water into wine/ Wait – you’ll find it only leads to trouble/ Leave it all behind/ Darwin makes me wonder if it’s settled from the start/ The music in my head, the city in my heart – I’m done for” from Darwin

Highlight Review: “If Truman Capote decided to write haunting pop ballads, it would sound remarkably similar to the music of Lily and the Parlour Tricks. Lily and her parlour pals inventively revisit harrowing Americana tales of love and murder with the wonder of old wives’ tales, drawing from rough avant-noise cleverly packed into cutesy pop packages.” – read more from Pretext Social Club
