NEW YORK, NY (December 9, 2016) – Philadelphia based alternative electronic pop duo MARIAN HILL — Jeremy Lloyd [production/songwriting] and Samantha Gongol [vocals/songwriting] — have teamed up with Lauren Jauregui of Fifth Harmony on their new track “Back To Me” which is out today; #1 on iTunes Electronic Top Songs Chart, Top 20 Overall. Listen to it HERE.
“Back To Me” places Samantha and Lauren in the midst of a vibrant vocal crossfire that swings from Sam’s sassy line, “I love to watch you try to turn your back to me”, back to Lauren’s, “when I know that any minute you’ll be back to me.”
About the song, Lauren comments, “Sam and Jeremy are such talented creatives and I was such a huge fan of theirs before we even met. Being able to form a genuine connection with them and then write together on this track was such an honor. I’m happy to be able to give people a snippet of my vibe for the first time in collaboration with them. I’m very proud of this track so I hope everyone enjoys it.”
The band continues, “Ever since we first met Lauren at our show at the Roxy over a year ago, we’ve been talking about making something together. Somehow, in the midst of both of our schedules, we managed to make it happen. ‘Back To Me’ began with the two of us on a plane and Lauren in a hotel room, ending with the recording in Jeremy’s bedroom. It has been our jam for the past several months. Now it belongs to you.”
In October, the duo unveiled the music video for “I Want You” on SPIN and embarked on a national headline tour. Check out the remaining tour dates below.
