If Marian Hill’s first three projects were establishing the electronic-pop duo’s music identity, their next era is deconstruction, and rebirth. NYC producer Jeremy Lloyd and vocalist Samantha Gongol are eager to get back into the thick of it, starting with their freewheeling new project, Was It Not, expected early in 2020.
Previous viral singles Down and One Time, inadvertently boxed the duo inside their signature style — minimalistic soundscapes embellished with hi-hats and glossy glitches. Now, with newfound energy, Lloyd and Gongol are challenging their fans, and themselves, on what Marian Hill can sound like.
Growing up in Havertown, Pennsylvania, Lloyd and Gongol became friends during an eighth grade production of The Music Man, the musical from which they took their name. Throughout their teenage years, they constantly shared songs they’d written with each other. Lloyd began experimenting with electronic and hip-hop production, and in college, they wrote 2013’s Whiskey stumbling upon their ostensibly first “Marian Hill”-sounding song. After Lloyd sent the track to nearly 60 different music blogs, the single got picked up, and started climbing the charts." (Promo Copy)
