🎧 Motorbike James – “Automatic”

Back in mid-November, we told you about Edmonton multi-instrumentalist Michael Werbicki aka Motorbike James. At the time, the electronic music producer released a rather infectious single Enamored. Now, he’s back with another track for your listening pleasure; Automatic.

“I’ve spent a lot of years on emotional autopilot – hands off the controls, at the mercy of my own volatility.” The song … “is about the idea of not loving yourself enough to be real and honest with yourself and others. Instead of being rational, it’s this knee-jerk emotion-driven reaction.”
