Pay Attention To Marian Hill

I gotta love any duo who name themselves after the main characters in “The Music Man.” Backstory: In January, Apple debuted its new ad for the wireless-headphone line AirPods, which featured the duo’s track “Down” soundtracking the gravity-defying moves of Los Angeles-based dancer Lil Buck. The eye-popping black-and-white clip’s synthesis of hypnotic visuals and dreamy music helped Marian Hill top the chart on Shazam, the “What’s-that-song?” app that identifies tunes for curious listeners. Jeremy Lloyd and Samantha Gongol have known each other since their youth outside of Philadelphia. After heading their separate ways for college they decided to collaborate, dubbing their project Marian Hill because they both appeared in a production of “The Music Man” during middle school.
