Listen to Sound of Memory by Shakthisree Gopalan, the second track off the Humans of Someone OST
It is rare enough for English independent films to be produced right here in India. It is even rarer for them to have brilliant, beautifully haunting soundtracks. Only two songs have been released so far, but this OST has already captured our hearts and has us begging for more.
Sound of Memory has award-winning vocalist Shakthisree Gopalan, and young but promising guitarist Achyuth Jaigopal, come together to create a bone-chilling sound that takes us for a walk down the memory lane.
Same Sea, Another Season is an excellent reinterpretation of an Ilayaraja composition by Govind Menon.
Humans of Someone leave us with a note that sums up the mood of the soundtrack:
“If you ever passed through Kovalam during the 80s, you’ve seen him.
You don’t know his name, but you know enough.
His legends are all bloody, coloured by the salt of his living.
‘The Guide’ has lived in Kovalam his entire life.
Which is to say that he has died in Kovalam his entire life.”
Personally, we can’t wait to watch this movie.
