Since the release of his acclaimed award-winning and SAMA-nominated debut album 'Destination Unknown' in 2022, Alternative Indie Singer-Songwriter Vaughn Prangley spent several months performing music in the Maldives, where he also built his own studio and honed his production skills. In mid 2023 Vaughn relocated to Dubai where he has been working on new music, entirely self-recorded and produced. The first of these new singles is called ‘Thick of it’ and will be available from Friday 25 August.

Vaughn shares that "In the hustle and bustle of modern life, it is all too easy to fall into a pattern of giving our lives away to society without fully realising the consequences. From the pressures of conformity to the demands of our professional lives, we often find ourselves so caught up in the ‘Thick of it’ that we rarely even notice the mess that we are in. An often meaningless cycle of routine and obligation. We all ask the question 'What is the meaning of all of this?' and find ourselves complaining about our nine-to-fives, yet we do it over and over again with rarely taking the steps to make a change. We’re trapped under the skin of the forever greedy society that we live in. In our quest to fit into societal norms, we often sacrifice our individuality."

“This song was written and produced entirely by myself in my studio. I wanted the production to send your mind to a place it hasn’t been before. A place that allows you to reflect on the journey that you are on. A sense of desperation lives in the vocals … a longingness to break free from the shackles of society. We need to pause and reflect on the significance of our existence and work towards finding true meaning in our lives. Break free from the monotony and embark on a journey of self-discovery and fulfilment. I wrote this track in hope of inspiring you to take a leap of faith and strive for personal happiness and success. Do not hide away from what your heart truly wants. Be free!"
