“The vocal sounded so touching that it immediately steals and conquers your hearts! The pleasant rhythms of Lo-Fi Pop, the sound is very bright and rich, filled with various elements that adorn the sound canvas of the entire mix. (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

“Вокал звучал настолько трогательно, что сразу крадёт и покоряет ваши сердца! Приятные ритмы lo-fi pop, звук очень яркий и насыщенный, наполненный разнообразными элементами, которые украшают звуковое полотно всего микса.”

**dilip** is a Brooklyn-based singer, writer, and producer. Born and raised in an immigrant household in the Midwest, he started performing at the age of 5 and grew up immersed in a diverse set of musical genres. He was formerly a member of South Asian boy band Penn Masala, through which he toured internationally and made a cameo in the movie *Pitch Perfect 2.*

He released his solo debut EP, *golden*, in late 2019 with a series of live events and listening parties. His music weaves R&B and indie influences with pop sensibilities. Fans have compared his sound to that of early Frank Ocean, Cautious Clay, Mac Ayres, and Daniel Caesar.

He recently played a [sold-out show at The Delancey in NYC with over 200 people](, and is currently planning additional shows this summer and fall. *Pretend* is the first of a series of 3 singles that will be releasing this summer and ultimately packaged up as into a sophomore EP, in addition to planned collaborations with multiple other indie/r&b/pop artists that will be releasing later this year.

Story behind the song as artist said:

"I wrote this song after an unexpected breakup. I balanced my weightier emotions in the hook (conversations end / my heart left on read / was it all pretend) with a lighter, upbeat vibe that reflects my nostalgia for the happier memories with my ex during the summer we started dating. I recorded a demo, debuted the song at a sold-out show at The Delancey in NYC to lots of positive feedback, and then teamed up with Mike Mroz (producer for Hadji Gaviota and other indie artists) to finish the song."
