    Vandaveer | Zanzabar

    Hearts won. Love lost. Battles waged. Demons cast. The winding road and the welcoming home. The great beginning, the great unknown and a lot of in-between too. It's all present and accounted for on Vandaveer's fifth and career-defining LP, The Wild Mercury. The title alludes to the musical explorations therein, fluid and bright, reaching from the traditions of Americana into modern pop soundscapes. The end result—a set of songs honest and wry, personal yet utterly relatable—proves that solitary journeys can find deeper, more meaningful truths through collective exploration.
