Marian Hill are Jeremy Lloyd (production and writing) and Samantha Gongol (vocals and writing), a new electronic duo from Philadelphia. Combining influences ranging from Ella Fitzgerald to Drake, the duo forge a unique electro/R&B sound with blues and jazz influences. The mighty Marian Hill announce new EP “Play” with the excellent new single “One Time”. Neatly balancing jazz influences in the melody with modern arrangement and rhythmic elements all while tying up the track within a compact and cool Marian Hill minimalist frame. The path to successfully blending jazz and contemporary sounds is lined with seemingly endless traunches of hokey garbage (Email subject line: Hey! Check Our Band, We Blend Miles Davis w/ Radiohead!) but the Marian Hill (taste and adeptness at selecting for the right arrangement help) sound just really really works. “Play” is out March 4th.
