Marian Hill – One Time


New group based out of Philadelphia, Marian Hill have released sultry single, “One Time,” to accompany the announcement of their debut EP Play due out March 4. Similar to Wild Belle in style, the brassy duo incorporate blues and jazz elements along with the more modernistic, resulting in a cool and contemporary rhythmic feel.

Catch their first show if you’re in the Philly area at Boot & Saddle, February 25.

Wild Belle – Another Girl


Wild Belle — whose live show was one of the surprise standout performances I saw last year — is coming back to DC this Tuesday to play at U Street Music Hall. If you’re not already familiar with the Chicagoan brother-sister duo, I suggest you get acquainted as their brassy blues and reggae-inflected songs are not to be overlooked.

In “Another Girl,” vocalist Natalie Bergman croons about being “another experimentation.” Stream the torch-like track below and check out the official western-inspired video released last month if you’re so inclined. Lastly, DO catch the charismatic duo live if given the chance.
