The Motion ​is the musical project of Non-Binary songwriter, engineer and producer​ Penny Churchill​. Originally from the Isle of Wight, the South London-based artist offers an emotionally driven, raw and dream-like presence to draw on deeply personal experiences. 

‘Sleep Talk’​ follows ​The Motion​’s warmly-received debut ​‘Hollow’​, which picked up online praise as well as some air time on ​BBC Music Introducing Solent​. Exploring themes of isolation and insomnia​ ​’Sleep Talk’​ is a sonic representation of entrapment vs. freedom. Reflected in the weightiness of the verse’s eerie electronics and sharply delivered vocals, the comparatively airy chorus provides a fleeting moment of relief as washy guitars and carefully-crafted vocal melodies lighten the atmosphere. 

“An emotion-strewn haze builds to a powerful swell of glitchy whirring hooks, creating a colourful slice of psychedelic electro-pop.” – G​et In Her Ears “If La Roux ever decided to go in a more industrial direction it would probably sound a little something like this.”​ – Rough Online
