The NYC-based indie-pop band Parlour Tricks have announced their signing to Bar/None Records with a debut album release set for early June 2015. Lead singer and songwriter Lily Cato tells us: “It feels crazy to say we’re putting out an album in the spring. We started work on these songs a year and a half ago, with no plans to speak of except a very real desire to start fresh and explore new avenues of recording. All we wanted was to push ourselves a little. We had no idea what we were going to do with the music once we finished recording. Like clockwork, Bar/None came along and told us that they were interested. That they understand the music we make. That they wanted to release the album we had put so much love and sweat and time into creating without asking us to change a single note. In this industry in 2015? That’s nothing short of a miracle.” PARLOUR TRICKS have been confirmed as an official South by Southwest band yet again and will be heading to Austin for a week full of top showcases next month.

Recipients of the Village Voice’s award for “Best Pop Band in NYC 2014″, PARLOUR TRICKS has been hailed as “the perfect combo of pretty and gritty” (The Wild Magazine). Consisting of Lily Cato (Lead Singer), Morgane Hollowell (Vocals), DeeDee Golub (Vocals), Brian Kesley (Bass), Terry Moore (Drums), and Angelo Spagnolo (Guitar), Parlour Tricks creates a kind of indie pop symmetry that sounds “50’s nostalgic, 90’s familiar, and 2020 progressive all at once” (The Most Definitely). With their “punchy, infectious, danceable rhythms, clean guitar, dirty synth, and heavenly voices” (Village Voice) it’s not too hard to see why Spotify took a shine to them, calling their sound “Vintage pop for the future.”


In 2014, PARLOUR TRICKS performed two sets at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Summerfest with KONGOS, alongside Portugal. The Man at a Lollapalooza after party, and CMJ Music Marathon. At CMJ 2014, they performed at the Paste Magazine showcase and the Outlaw Roadshow showcase, curated by Counting Crows’ Adam Duritz and Ryan Spaulding. PARLOUR TRICKS have also recently been featured on the likes of EARMILK, The Village VoiceAudiotreeDaytrotterInStyle MagazineWall Street Journal’s Speakeasy , All Things Go, just to name a few.


With the idea that they would “…put out the best records, bar none,” Hoboken, NJ based Bar/None Records has been releasing fine independent music since 1986. They Might Be Giants debut was amongst their first releases and their catalog includes releases from such influential artists as Yo la Tengo, The Feelies, Freedy Johnston, The Front Bottoms, Of Montreal and many more. The label can’t wait to add PARLOUR TRICKS to that list, stating, “We are super excited to be working with Parlour Tricks. We find their slightly nostalgic yet thoroughly modern approach to pop music mesmerizing.”


Parlour Tricks recorded their debut album in Nashville with producer Emery Dobyns and will be releasing it in early June 2015 via Bar/None Records.
