The dream pop duo Parker and Lily compose simplistic indie rock melodies similar to Galaxie 500 and Siddal, and have been called the John Doe and Exene Cervenka of N.Y.C. angst pop. Charming vocalist Parker Noon and pianist Lily Wolfe, formerly of Valentine Six, formed the band in early 2000 and have been local favorites in and around N.Y.C. clubs like the Knitting Factory and CBGB's. Shared dates with Cat Power, Stereo Total, Arab Strap, and White Hassle have also led to a growing fan base and critic's buzz, allowing Parker and Lily to sign with Orange Recordings for their summer 2001 debut Hello Halo. Two years later, the duo surfaced with Here Comes Winter and a new deal with Manifesto. By spring 2004, Parker and Lily were living in Athens, GA and preparing themselves for a third album. Drummer Jeremy Wheatley and organist Daniel Rickard were added to the live lineup. Wolfe and Noon's 14-year romance was also over. Luckily in the wake of their breakup Parker and Lily created their most adventurous psalter of their career yet; The Low Lows was released in January 2005 (on WARM).
