‘Down’ became a smash single after being featured in Apple’s new TV campaign for iPhone 7 & AirPods. Now, Marian Hill, the duo of Jeremy Lloyd (producer) and Samantha Gongol (vocalist), reveals the music video for the intoxicating record.
Currently, No. 19 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart and recently one of pop radio’s most added songs in the US, ‘Down’ entered the Top 20 of Spotify’s global Viral Chart, reached No. 1 on Shazam in the US and Canada and No. 5 on Shazam’s worldwide chart.
Marian Hill shift the classic paradigm of a woman on a stage and a man with a piano to a woman on a mic and a man with a laptop. Tempting paradox with a blend of blues and bass, acoustic and digital, classic and modern, the duo’s full-length debut ACT ONE and ‘Down’ have both caused huge waves since their release.
Two years ago Sam and Jeremy wrote and recorded ‘Whisky’ during spring break in Jeremy’s parents’ basement. When they released it for free on Soundcloud later that summer it was the only song they’d written for the project, and in a little over a year’s time they had recorded their first EP in a bedroom, amassed millions of plays on various platforms, sold out shows across the US and featured in high profile commercials.
Debut album ACT ONE released last year – with a physical release scheduled for March 24th – takes you on a journey through the complexities of modern relationships, with each song inhabiting a specific and charged relationship lyrically, melodically, and sonically.
