Marian Hill To Release Debut Album 'Act One' on June 24
PREMIERES NEW SINGLE “I WANT YOU”
PRE-ORDER LIVE NOW
“’I Want You’ rattles virtually from start to finish, the nervously excited subconscious poking its way out from underneath the song’s otherwise calm, sleek exterior.”
“…a flair for methodical, crisp and spare electro-R&B. It’s utterly simple — vocals layered for added density and sweetness, synthesizers with room to breathe, percussion that’s deliberate and potent.”
– The New York Times
“…this group's palette is as diversified and flavorful as they come. Marian Hill is invested in a bass-heavy yet soulful soundscape that is quite alluring, but also at times curious. Their star power is unanimously unparalleled.”
- Teen Vogue
“Marian Hill’s jazz-infused take on electro-pop has quickly made the Philadelphia duo a band worth paying attention to.”
– Pigeons & Planes
“Marian Hill’s pop is alluring and dripping with swagger.
