You'd think the pop/rock band Soch would be on to their next big thing by now, but the song that shot them to fame is still picking up honours!

Their song 'Awari', which was included in the soundtrack of Mohit Suri's Ek Villian, has been nominated at International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards 2015 in the Best Music Direction category.

This is the fourth nomination for the band in India; Soch has previously been nominated at Brittania Filmfare Awards, GIMA Awards and Life Ok Screen Awards (where the band won the Best Music Award).

At IIFA 2015, the band is up against Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy (2 States), Vishal Bhardwaj (Haider) and Mithoon, Yo Yo Honey Singh, Pritam and Arko Pravo Mukherjee (Yaariyan) in the Best Music Director category.

Music directors for other tracks of Ek Villian —Mithoon ('Banjara', 'Zaroorat' and 'Hamdard') and Ankit Tiwari ('Galliyan') — have also been nominated.

IIFA 2015 kicks off on June 5 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
