Billie Eilish – Bellyache (Marian Hill Remix)
So simple, but so good. This track is a minimal example of what you can do with vocals, a bit of ambiance, and dynamic percussion. I’ve said this over and over again, you don’t need to do too much to make a song click. Marian Hill does an excellent job transforming the indie/folk arrangement into a more of a chill/indie/trap arrangement. Marian Hill is a songwriting duo comprised of producer Jeremy Lloyd and vocalist Samantha Gongol. They are responsible for that infectious song, Down, on the Apple iPhone 7 + AirPods commercial. They pride themselves on simplicity and they do it well.
Their entire vibe is simple, which is why we love the collaboration with the 15 year old singer from LA (yes, she is only 15!), Billie Eilish. This is a fantastic collaboration that we hope to hear more from.
Watch the original music video below – there is beauty in simplicity and meaning.
