He said that it's a musical experience that bridges the gap between the past and the present, celebrating the enduring essence of this legendary era via melody and lyrics. "Being a part of 'The Archies' has allowed me to rediscover the magic of a bygone era that has had a lasting impact on generations," he added.
Zoya Akhtar on 'Sunoh'
Zoya Akhtar wanted 'Sunoh' to encapsulate the teenage soul of the 1960s. 'The Archies' is a tribute to that era and the song has to evoke simplicity and nostalgia, but also rebellion and idealism that would appeal to today's Gen Z. Ankur and The Islanders are true rock and roll boys, thus they nailed it.
