This week’s edition: The Underdogs
- Marian Hill – Down
I’ve been eagerly anticipating the release of this duo’s new album for weeks and I must say they’ve absolutely surpassed all of my expectations. Marian Hill has been a duo to watch ever since they dropped their jaw-dropping remix for Aquilo’s ‘Human’, and followed it up with their debut album – one that I considered to be one of the best albums of 2015 – Sway. Their knack of fusing R&B elements with minimalist electro-pop sounds to create a jazzy avant-soul feel is truly one of a kind. Their simple, yet incredibly hypnotizing, beats draw you in and captivate you by making you guess what direction the track is going to go in. This gem does exactly that. Samantha Gongol’s sultry voice seduces you and lures you in until – BAM – magic happens. You’re in for a real treat if you haven’t heard this one yet.
