Indo American Indie Pop Duo Lil Idli released premiere debut single "Little Girl"

After years of accompanying each others' solo work, husband-wife duo LIL IDLI, comprised of Deepak Gopinath & Ranjani Prabhakar, decided to gel their musical sensibilities together in early 2020, investing in a tiny home studio to track their debut project -- Mitochondria -- to release in Fall 2021.

Their first single off the album, "Little Girl", is an ode to one's younger self, a subtle rallying cry to entrust the magic and manifestation of your inner child. The pair's forthcoming EP Mitochondria is set to release in Fall 2021, as a concept album exploring the inherited lore traveling in their mitochondrial DNA, dedicated to the women before them, living inside them, and echoing their own voices. Their debut "Little Girl" is the first installation of this concept.

The new track opens with lush synths and a driving percussion section, with ghost-like harmonies in the outro, as an invitation for the past, present and future selves to unite. Gopinath, the band's main producer, percussionist and co-arranger, draws from his experiences studying jazz, composition and electronic arts at the Berklee College of Music, bringing a thoughtful minimalism and contemplation of musical forms to this genre-bending track.

LIL IDLI roped in veteran engineer Rob Murray (credits include ODESZA, Chet Porter, Diplo) of the Austin, Texas studio Poolside Sound for the final mix and master.
