This past weekend our favorite Philadelphian funk-pop duo, Marian Hill released new song “Down” and it does not disappoint. More sparse than previous efforts, the cool new piano and jazz infused track appears to be a lyrical nod to The Exciters, replete with a glitchy interlude. Get down-diddy-down with this pop number below.
Philly electropop duo Marian Hill are back with a new EP and stellar lead single, “Wasted.” Made up of Jeremy Lloyd (production/songwriting) and Samantha Gongol (vocals/songwriting), the rising duo have a singular style that consists of sliced vocals, silky synth lines, sultry electronic soundscapes and even elements of trip-hop. With playful lyrics and punchy percussion to boot — as demonstrated on the latest track — Marian Hill can rest assured their immense talent isn’t wasted on us.
Marian Hill’s second EP Sway released today via Photo Finish / Republic Records. Stream “Wasted” and check out their upcoming tour dates below.

Another Saturday night calls for another Remix Roundup — so let’s get started shall we? First up, we have the new Claptone reconstruction of RÜFÜS‘s third single “Sundream.” The German producer adds some tight deep house percussion that doesn’t stray too much from the original — perfectly lending itself to your late Saturday night activities. Next, Marian Hill has reworked singer Zella Day‘s “Sweet Ophelia” into a funky, fresh chopped-up reinterpretation worthy of your time. And finally, NYC production duo Follow Me regale us with their high-energy single “Somethin’ Bout You,” that will indeed make you want to follow them — or break out into dance — one or the other. Get down with this groovy dance floor track by streaming below and picking up the free download on Soundcloud.
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.
