Carli Brill – “Hey Little Girl”


“Hey Little Girl” is a retro-pop success from Carli Brill, a singer/songwriter born and raised in Southern California. The chilly pulsing keys lend a fun Beach Boys-esque charm, the suave verses growing gradually with vigor into the delectable “laugh if you’ve done it all wrong,” hook. This particular hook, and the successful retro-minded pop aesthetic in general, compares favorably to Camera Obscura. Serenely melodic vocals, surfy guitars, and throwback guitar twangs combine for a hooky, addictive sound throughout “Hey Little Girl.”

Brill is planning three new singles throughout 2022, recorded in Nashville and produced by Brendan St. Gelais.

This track and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2022’ Spotify playlist.
