It wasn’t long ago that Lily & the Parlour Tricks blew us away at CMJ with their vintage vibes, powerful vocals and on-stage chemistry. After their recent single “Belle Guinness” brought the band back onto our radar, we were thrilled to hear there was more new music with latest song “Requiem.”
”’I will write you a requiem’ was a phrase that had been rattling around my head for a while,” said Lily Claire. “I had been thinking about the way we—me, you, anyone—come to terms with the expiration of a relationship. The period of mourning can be so dramatic even if the ending itself is anticlimactic. I had tried the line in a few different places but nothing felt quite right until I wrote that bass line on the piano.”
