New Music Monday: New Tunes From Lucy Spraggan, Mongoose & Vavo Ft ZHIKO


Body & Soul (For Cara) is named after the summer solstice festival and dedicated to the band’s keyboard player. It is a dreamy soundscape that gives a sense of the magic and fun of a festival environment, with undercurrents of sensory overload – how such a place can be overwhelming for the more anxious among us.

The act of sharing a rain jacket is at the core of this song, hand in hand with friendship, support, and love. This first single from their second album ‘ Suck the Wound’ is both beautiful and unsettled, indicating common threads that will run through the album in its entirety.


Dance music duo VAVO have charted two singles on Billboard and have received radio airplay from stations across the globe, they team up with Irish act ZHIKO on this latest offering. “Anything For You” is an uplifting dance- pop anthem that brings listeners along a person’s quest to prove his dedication and love to his one true soulmate. 

It’s an earworm that appeals to the repeat button and everything about this track is catchy. Good vibes and a feelgood summer track that you need to add to your spotify playlists.  It’s a fun/happy drop that is sure to have you dancing and singing all day long.

The rapturous new track ‘Lucky Stars’ from Lucy Spraggan’s fifth studio album ‘Today Was A Good Day’ coincides with a UK tour which kicked off in May in Inverness and included a sold-out London Show.

Going from strength to strength, the endearing singer songwriter wears her heart on her sleeve on the new track. It is an appeal to the repeat button extremely radio-friendly offering from an album full of gems.
