Single of the Day: Marian Hill “Mistaken” (2016)

At a late night SXSW showcase last year, we came across American R&B act Marian Hill. On a lineup curated by the Communion label, vocalist Samantha Gongol brought a swagger with her performance that stood up well against the rock and roll antics of Catfish & The Bottlemen and The Vaccines, two bands who would follow on after her set.

Since that show, we’ve been hooked on Marian Hill’s sounds and today, we’re stoked to find out that Gongol and Jeremy Lloyd have dropped a new single in “Mistaken”. Featuring Steve Davit on saxophone, the single is hypnotic, alluring and slinky as hell. Gongol’s jazz-infused pop vocal brings a glossy vibe to a beats-heavy production courtesy of Lloyd, while the saxophone permeating throughout the song fattens the entire tune out even more.

As the latest release from Marian Hill’s much-anticipated debut album, ACT ONE, “Mistaken” is a perfect taster of what’s to come. Get round it.
