Marian Hill Talk Collaborating With Lauren Jauregui, Finding Their Sound at Air + Style 2017

Marian Hill is getting a ton of notice these days thanks to their slinky single "Down" being used in Apple's first AirPods headphones, earning the jazz-electronic duo a Top 40 hit. The pair continued spreading their sound this past week at Shaun White's Air + Style 2017 festival where they talked to Fuse about the fest, working with Lauren Jauregui and finding out who they were as musicians.

"Our sound really started from 'Whiskey,' which is the first song we made together," producer/keyboardist Jeremy Lloyd shares of initially navigating Marian Hill with Samantha Gongol. "We kind of stumbled into it. I just happened to have a hip-hop beat on my computer, I was making a bunch of different beats, and I played that one for Sam. We started writing the song to it and it turned into this thing really liked, but we weren't sure if it was anything. We sent it out to the Internet, and people were really responding to it and wanted more."

One of those fans include Fifth Harmony member Lauren Jauregui, who collabed with the group on the sassy, glitchy single "Back to Me."

"She mentioned us in an interview and then Twitter went wild about it so we got in touch," Lloyd adds. "She came to a show, she's really dope. We really got along really well and making a song together was pretty effortless."
