MUMBAI: Indie music artist Siddrth recently released his original Tamil single ‘Paravaigal’. This song follows the journey of a heartbroken man, so deeply rooted in his love for a woman who, despite the pain he brings her, continues to seek pleasure in her memories, slowly losing his mind. desperate to relive those moments. While the hook of this chorus is almost ecstatic, the lyrics of the verses speak of a polarizing relationship that has caused conflicting emotions.
Speaking about the track, Siddrth said, “Our past remains in our present, taunting us with the ability to relive and experience the song was inspired by the idea of memories existing eternally in a digital world. Many of those memories over and over again. In reality, nostalgia is just a drug that takes us back in time, completely losing the present”.
