They have a very interesting story behind the making of their song. When we asked what is the story behind making of Puthiya Kaariyam,
Deri Lorus says, “At first, we started writing lyrics slowly we got catchy melody for the Chorus. We three were completely satisfied with that melody and we slowly composed the verse. Then, we completed the composition for the whole song and started arranging and programming the instruments. We programmed everything except Tabla, because we don’t have anything initially to invest. Day by day we were working on the track we reached Oasis Recording Studio for Vocal session. We got the vocal ready and started to mixing the song ourselves.”
“When we finally had the audio, we planned for a Music Video for the song. We decided for a outdoor Video shoot and we’re searching for locations. We hired a relative of mine for the shoot who is a Cinematographer because we don’t have a huge to produce on videography. And the visual output totally merged with the song and we were very satisfied with the video. We believed that this song going to be blessing to many. We fixed a date for the Release. On 15th of February, we released the Music Video on YouTube and we made it a available on all digital platforms. We all were waiting for the views and we are amazed it reached many and was a blessing. Many shared their review and testimonies with us. We are thankful and grateful to God.”
