“Down” by Marian Hill

You might have just heard this song in the Apple airpods commercial it is featured in, but this song has actually been out for quite some time. “Down” is the first single off the duo’s debut album, Act One. They say this song is a very strong representation of their album. When writing “Down” they wanted it to have a very classic, very old meets new, almost 1920’s vibe written from the perspective of a strong female character on a Friday night. She didn’t want to go out at first, but does anyway and finds herself in a jazz club. She’s slowly feeling the vibe of the club and finds herself not wanting to leave until the sun comes up. This is the story of how the night progressed through playful lyrics that express imagery in the listener’s mind.
