The three-part harmonies of fiercely proud New Yorker’s Lily and the Parlour Tricks are so big and bold and powerful they could knock down buildings, and the group puts them to good use on new track “Lovesongs,” a slinky, danceable hit that just might signal their breakout. Chances are its theme — “when your heart says yes and your head says no” — is one all who’ve ever loved the wrong one (and who hasn’t at some point?) can relate to. It’s the kind of song that sounds best while dancing on a bed, and we can easily imagine hearing it over the top of every rom-com film trailer over the next year. You can listen to “Lovesongs” below. Bed not included.
