Marian Hill’s “One Time” sounds like what would happen if Lorde decided to make smooth R&B

I’ve been ride or die for Lorde since the beginning, but if there is one thing the sixteen year old is missing (maybe not the worst thing, given her age) it’s the sensuality and warmth of R&B.  Enter Marian Hill, and singer Samantha Gongol, who has that missing sensuality and sings over similar minimalist electronic backgrounds.  “One Time” also features this electronic saxophone-like riff that I think might actually be impossible to get out of your head.  It’s music to accompany cigar smoke and dimly lit rooms, walking the line between the sounds of the past and present.
