Indie Singer-Songwriter Sruthi Dhulipala Debuts with her Original "Captive"

MUMBAI: Hyderabad based singer-songwriter Sruthi Dhulipala released her debut pop single, “Captive,” on December 15, 2020. The song is out on all major audio platforms and is set in a contemporary pop theme, flavored with Indian classical elements that come and occasionally go through the song.

Written and composed by Sruthi, Captive is a somber melody that talks about an overthinking millennial, so lost in their thoughts that they end up being captive in their own head. It is written in simple yet relatable lyrics that appeal to any overthinking teenager or young adult today. The Hindi poetry, written by Sunayana Kachroo, talks about how overthinking is a vicious circle and we end up exactly where we are no matter how much we dwell on it. The line “Mudne ke mod hai, laute yahi magar” is the singer’s favorite as it exactly sums up the theme for the entire song.

“Captive is hopeful, positive, yet also realistic at the same time,” says Sruthi. “When I first wrote the lyrics, I was penning down how I felt at the moment - it was raw and honest, and I decided to use the exact same lines for the song because that’s how I wanted my song to be - raw, honest, and something that connects instantly to the listener,” she adds. Sruthi is also a Carnatic vocalist and has been training under Hyderabad Sisters for more than fifteen years. “Carnatic is a part of me; it makes me who I am and I enjoy adding that flavor to my compositions,” says Sruthi. The Indian Classical touches in the song give it an interesting touch, all the while keeping the listener curious about what might come next. Stream Captive on audio platforms now!
