Marian Hill – Lips

Marian Hill – Lips. Philadelphia electronic pop duo Marian Hill return with a pair of new tracks – “Got It” and “Lips” – that demonstrate two very different sides of their ever-maturing craft. Comprised of Jeremy Lloyd (production/songwriting) and Samantha Gongol (vocals/songwriting), the pair’s roots can be traced back as far as a middle school talent show that saw Lloyd – the son of a conductor and an opera singer – hear Gongol sing for the first time. Many a moon down the line, following a stint studying music composition at college for Lloyd while Gongol was cutting her teeth in New York as a songwriter, the pair reunited in the former’s bedroom studio. “Got It” and “Lips”, the latest offerings from the duo, might be the finest syntheses of their output to date. Working under a modus operandi to fuse the simplicity of timeless songwriting with the dexterous craft of modern pop production, “Got It” finds itself in the middle of a head-on collision between sultry soul and whirring synth brass. “Lips”, meanwhile, goes straight for the romantic jugular – flitting between emotive electronica and jittery, after-hours RnB.

Jeremy Lloyd and Samantha Gongol have made a catchy-as-all-hell cut with “Lips”; it’s studded with jazzy electro-stings and glitter-encrusted charm, and relies on Gongol’s velvet vox for most melody. It’s a sparse pop ditty, but that doesn’t stop it being something of immense substance. This is a cut to scarf down your lug ‘oles pronto.

Marian Hill – Lips Lyrics:
Sinking fast, undertow
Pull me in, don’t let go
On your mark, ready set
Feel your breath on my neck

Your lips, they got me going
Heart flips, you got me floatin’
Your lips, your lips
Your lips, they got me going
Heart flips, you got me floatin’
Your lips, your lips

Overwhelmed, hazy eyes
Staring at tinted skies
And I like what we do
Running wild just us two

Your lips, they got me going
Heart flips, you got me floatin’
Your lips, your lips
Your lips, they got me going
Heart flips, you got me floatin’
Your lips, your lips
Your lips, they got me going
Heart flips, you got me floatin’
Your lips, your lips
Your lips, they got me going
Heart flips, you got me floatin’
Your lips, your lips

Sip each second drink it slowly
Watch the hours melt away
Sip each second drink it slowly
Watch the hours melt away

Your lips, they got me going
Heart flips, you got me floatin’
Your lips, your lips
Your lips, they got me going
Heart flips, you got me floatin’
Your lips, your lips
Your lips, they got me going
Heart flips, you got me floatin’
You got me float in’
Your Flips
Marian Hill - Lips
