‘Sunoh,’ is a song created by the ingenious duo of Ankur Tewari and The Islanders, lyrically woven  by the maestro Javed Akhtar and the young and talented Dot, harmoniously performed by Tejas  Menon and Shivam Mahadevan. ‘Sunoh’ helps  viewers  to immerse into  the exciting world  of ‘The  Archies,’ introducing the characters of the film.

It’s a musical experience that bridges the past and present, celebrating the  enduring essence of this iconic period through melody and lyrics. Being a part of ‘The Archies’ has  allowed me to rediscover the magic of an era that has deeply impacted generations.” 

Filmmaker Zoya Akhtar, said, “With ‘Sunoh’ we wanted to encapsulate the teenage soul of the 60’s.  ‘The  Archies’  is  a  celebration  of  that  era.  The  song  had  to  evoke  simplicity,  nostalgia  but  also  a  rebellion and idealism that could resonate with Gen Z today. Ankur and The Islanders are rock n’ roll  boys at heart so they nailed it.  

Ankur Tewari said, “The music of ‘The Archies’ is a heartfelt tribute to the timeless rock and roll era,  a  sonic  journey  that  captures  the  spirit  of  a  musical  revolution.  Through  our  compositions,  The  Islanders and  I, aimed  to  resurrect  the electric energy and  vibrant rhythms  of  that iconic  period,  offering listeners a chance to relive the magic of a musical era that remains etched in the hearts of  generations.”
