‘Subtle Thing’ builds on the signature sound that transformed the pair into a ubiquitous electronic R&B sensation. Powered by airy percussion and rich production, the track feels as catchy as it does cinematic. The single heralds the impending arrival of the group’s hotly-anticipated sophomore album.
Next up, MARIAN HILL will embark on a full-scale North American headline tour, including a stop at Coachella. Billed as the “UNUSUAL” tour, Los Angeles-based singer and producer Michl will serve as support. Check out the full confirmed dates below.
Additionally, Samantha Gongol has contributed a track to the latest soundtrack instalment from the Fifty Shades franchise, Fifty Shades Freed. The track, entitled Pearls, is available now.
Marian Hill first entered the scene when blog support led their debut single, ‘Whisky’ to a top 10 position on Hype Machine’s charts. Following the 2013 ‘Play’ and 2015 ‘Sway’ EPs, the duo quietly rose from indie favourite to pop sensation on their own terms bolstered by viral hits such as ‘Got It’ and ‘One Time’. ACT ONE’s ‘Down’ which featured on Apple’s TV campaign for iPhone 7 & AirPods, eventually went platinum, racking up over 102 million Spotify streams, over 50 million Apple Music streams, reaching the top 25 on the Billboard Hot 100, and holding the #1 spot on the US Shazam chart for nearly 2 months. Act One (The Complete Collection) saw them attract cameos from heavy hitters such as Lauren Jauregui of Fifth Harmony and Big Sean, while illuminating the scope of their deep, diverse, and dynamic style. Along the way, they played sold out shows across the US and Europe (including a sold-out show at London’s Scala), captivated audiences at festivals such as Electric Forest Music Festival, Osheaga Music Festival, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands and Governor’s Ball and provided stomping performances on huge national TV shows in the US and UK including Jimmy Fallon, Good Morning America and Later With Jools Holland.
