Mood TV series 2022: where to find Nicole Lecky written songs on BBC show and can you stream them on Spotify?

The new BBC Three drama Mood has a great original soundtrack featuring songs Fire and BackRoad Gee

Mood is a new BBC Three drama that explores the dark secrets behind the idealised view of influencer culture.

The show looks behind the Instagram filters and asks how far a person would be willing to go for

online fame.

Nicôle Lecky stars as Sasha, a wannabe singer and rapper who is kicked out by her family following a drunken argument, and must find her own way in the world of social media fame.

Mood has drawn comparisons with Fleabag and Chewing Gum for its portrayal of a young woman navigating the confusing and sometimes scary world of adulthood.

Much of the story is told through an original soundtrack, performed by Lecky, and it has proven immensely popular among fans of the show.

Which songs feature in Mood?

The soundtrack features original songs like Fire by Lecky, BackRoad Gee by Fear Nuttin’, and B Young by Wine.

Rather than writing parody songs, as are featured in many music dramas, Lecky wanted to showcase authentic music and create a soundtrack that could be enjoyed in its own right, outside of the show.

Reflecting Lecky’s East London background, grime, jungle, garage and drill all feature in the show.

Songs from the Mood soundtrack are available on BBC Sounds, Spotify, and Apple Music

Who wrote the music with Nicôle Lecky?

Lecky recorded the Mood soundtrack with Kwame Kwei-Armah OBE, a British actor, playwright, and singer.

Kwei-Armah is artistic director at the Young Vic theatre in London and has produced more than a dozen plays over his career so far, including a musical about the life and music of Bob Marley.
