Lula Wiles are a Boston-based trio made up of Isa Burke, Ellie Buckland, and Mali Obomsawin, three friends who began collaborating in college, released their self-titled debut in 2016 and have since played major folk festivals like Newport and Philadelphia. They're a Smithsonian Folkways signee and released their sophomore album, What Will We Do, on the label on Jan. 25. Their three-part harmonies are warm, their lyrics real and smiles contagious, and they brought all three to the Paste Studio in New York City on Tuesday, Jan. 8, for a session in support of the new record, though they didn't play either of the already-released singles ("Love Gone Wrong" and "Good Old American Values"). Rather, they played three new songs from What Will We Do for their Internet audience—"Hometown," an ode to their shared home state of Maine, "Nashville, Man," ("an anti love song about Nashville") and "Independence Day," plus an unreleased, unrecorded (until now) track written by Buckland, "It's Cool, We're Cool, Everything's Cool," a smart-ass millennial love song.
