Scottish artist Alex Amor shares the joys of the ephemeral nature of almost everything in her new single “Motion.” Taking off with playful jangly chords, “Motion” lets Alex’ crispy vocals exude the pleasure of change while also admitting the sense of loss that comes with any kind of transition. Halfway into the song, the smoky ambience and smeared echoes kick in as Alex keeps nudging us to move forward. Hit play:

Speaking of the influence behind the track, Alex shared: “There’s a melancholy to the impermanence of everything but it’s also incredibly freeing – and I wanted to capture that idea in a song. Motion is something we can either flow with or against, and I’m learning to accept that the only thing we can rely on is that nothing stays the same.”

“Motion” is from Alex’ upcoming debut EP Love Language, which will be out on January 15th via Believe.
