is this solvable?

a'[t] + b'[t]== -p1 a[t] - p2 b[t] where {a[0]== a0, b[0]== b0} is this solvable in Mathematica? If so, how will I go about doing so? let's assume a[0]== a0, and b[0]==b0 if symbolic solution isn't possible, then intial conditions of a[0]== 1, and b[0]==0.5 couild be used...(or any other numbers for that matter) thanks in advance.
