Mervin Solomon and Vivek Siva make their music debut with the movie Vadacurry
At 23, Mervin Solomon and Vivek Siva have snapped up their first feature film, Vadacurry. The Jai-Swati starrer came their way after Yuvan Shankar Raja walked out of the projecta��after composing just one song. However, the two friends-cum-composers are thrilled. a�?I am a huge fan of Yuvan. He was at his peak when we were in school. To share an album name with him is an honour,a�? saysA� Solomon, who is also a fan of A R Rahman and dreams of working with the composer.
The filma��s producer, Dhayanidhi Azhagiri, roped in the duo inon the recommendation of composer Anirudh Ravichander (who used to be in a band with them, called Zinx). a�?We had two days to compose songs. The first was Sunny,a�? says Solomon. Siva insists that the song will be a big hit. a�?It features Sunny Leone. I saw the song sequence and it is a treat. We have tried to give variety in all our songs. We also have songs by Siddharth Mahadevan and Gana Bala, who is the find of the year,a�? he says.
Following the tune
Solomon and Siva have been musically-inclined since childhood. While Solomon grew up playing the keyboard at church (which he does even today), Sivaa��s parents encouraged him to pursue music while at school, atA� Padma Sheshadri Bala Bhavan.
The duo arena��t too nervous about their first project, but they made sureA� that Ravichander listened to all their songs. a�?We are all friends and have worked with each other for a long time. In fact, I worked with Ani on the film 3 (Siva was the music programmer). He always listens to our songs and gives us feedback.a�?
Vadacurry is scheduled to release in May. It has five songs, including one composed by Raja.
