Philadelphia electronic pop duo Marian Hill used the power of social media to make a new music video or “Differently” with dozens of their fans.
In the video, we see Jeremy Lloyd and Samantha Gongol chilling on a couch, as different women are added to the scene to the beat of the song. The fans chosen for the video are a diverse group of all kinds of women. There are younger women, older women, women of color, trans women. The diversity of the women in the video speaks to the universality of Marian Hill’s music, and helps frame the song’s message of female empowerment, specifically women helping other women.Another small but admirable point is that Jeremy Lloyd, producer of the group doesn’t take up a lot of space in a song and video specifically targeted towards women. He sits silently, bobbing his head along agreement as the women around him do their thing.
Marian Hill’s new LP Unusual comes out May 11 on Republic Records, which you can preorder here. They’ll also be playing a hometown show at Union Transfer on May 8th, and you can find tickets and information for it at the XPN Concert Calendar..
