He arranged guitars for the song “Bhavalokada” in the film. He has a bunch of unreleased material that he is going to delight us with soon. He is kicking things off with the smooth Tamil number “Piravi” and that’s what we are reviewing here.
“Piravi” is a song about an inner awakening, to a path leading to being one with nature and feeling oneness with all of creation. The poet muses about the moving and the stationary, the glow and dark, the dream and the awakening. The song follows the journey of the mind’s musing.
It is very evident that when MS Krsna is not helping renowned music directors compose, produce and arrange film scores, he is busy crafting delightful soundscapes. “Piravi” is a beautifully crafted song, rendered over soft beats with oceans of space-y texture and ambiance, making for a billowy track that lifts the spirits just as well as it soothes them. While the vocals might be the focal point of the tune, it’s the overall compositional brilliance that will stay with you long after the track is over.
