EDITORS’ NOTES

A chill permeates even the warmest tracks on Yuvan Shankar Raja’s soundtrack to the horror film Balloon, showcasing a complex, clever side of the composer. A spine-tingling sideshow piano intro kicks off “Vaanam Dhaane”, leading into the single “Mazhai Megam”, whose minor key and foreboding strings complement an emotional guest vocal by Priya Jerson. Anirudh Ravichander sits in on “Shut Up Pannunga”, a brief, intense mood-setter; while Vijay Yesudas and Priyanka duet on “Uyirile Uyirile”—but if it’s scares you’re after, crank up “Revenge of The Joker (Theme)”, complete with low, ghostly chants and a soft, nearly subliminal layer of screams in the background.
