Get it? Like “stick it in your pipe…” Oh, forget it. I’ve been discovering a lot of great music lately and trying to think of a way to present it all to you. I thought maybe every so often I could share a few songs to check out and suggest possible playlists that they would really spruce up! Here’s my first go at it. Today I present to you Phoebe Ryan, and Marian Hill!
Phoebe Ryan “Mine”
I first heard “Mine” when it was featured on Spotify’s New Music Tuesday playlist on February 3. This is an artist you’re going to want to keep your eye one this year. SHE IS GOING PLACES! “Mine” is a beautiful electro/synth pop song about taking ownership of a bad situation and being proud that you made it through. Finding the gold in the wreckage, the lesson to be learned by maybe a heartbreak or mental breakdown.
I would stick this in with any playlist that features Ellie Goulding, Ingrid Michaelson, or even Tegan and Sara. Here are some other suggested playlist categories:
- Self Affirmations
- Getting Over (Insert Noun Here)
- Songs with Great Melodies and Hooks
This song is obviously available on Spotify (even now featured on the Viral Hits playlist) but you can also purchase it through iTunes.

Marian Hill “Lips”
Here’s another electro-pop song for you today. “Lips” is one of two songs this duo released to demonstrate what they could do with synths. I heard about this song from a recent SUPER FRUITS episode. Mitch mistakenly called Marian Hill just a “she,” but the song was suggested by a fan. Mitch usually has great suggestions but the way he described the song sounded right up my alley, so I took to the internet! Lyrics that seems so simple and a melody that seems so predictable sounds almost hypnotizing with the instrumentals. I would highly recommend this song to anyone with interest in music production.
I would add this song to these playlists:
- Songs to Make-out To
- Chill Hang Outs
- Writing Novels in Coffee Shops
You can find “Lips” and their EP Sway over on Spotify. You can also support Marian Hill by purchasing their music through iTunes or Amazon.
