Megzz: Riding the Waves of Success with “Through the Motions” EP
In a year marked by sold-out shows, impressive music video directing credits, a show-stopping performance at All Points East, and the lens of an Amazon Prime documentary capturing her journey, Northamptonshire’s own singer-songwriter extraordinaire, Megzz, is capping off an extraordinary 2023 with the release of her latest EP, “Through the Motions”.
Megzz’s musical magic is a captivating blend of R&B, neo-soul, and pop, and she’s been on an unstoppable trajectory throughout 2023. Her momentum surged after she featured prominently in the Amazon Prime documentary, “Unsigned,” a gripping exploration of AMEX’s unsigned artists, which made waves at the end of 2022. In her music, Megzz finds solace and offers a powerful therapeutic experience to both herself and her listeners. Her lyrical prowess is anchored in themes of empowerment, self-love, and a candid examination of mental health struggles.
“The EP is an unabashedly candid and deeply personal body of work, delving into themes of consent, boundaries, self-love, grief, and the battles with mental health,” Megzz revealed. “But above all, ‘Through the Motions’ is a source of empowerment and inspiration. It encourages others to find strength in voicing their emotions and owning their narratives.”
“Through the Motions” boasts two electrifying new tracks, including the heartfelt anthem “Motions,” a song that has held a special place in Megzz’s heart for years. Penned in 2019 as a personal mantra before finding its lyrical form, “Motions” serves as what Megzz describes as “the sunset during the bad days and the sunrise on the good ones.” Unlike retrospective musings, “Motions” captures the essence of living in the moment while navigating the labyrinth of mental health struggles. It’s an ode to confronting the “horrible, uncomfortable feelings that ebb and flow like waves” and learning to ride them out. Waves and the soothing sounds of water serve as central motifs throughout “Through the Motions,” symbolizing the journey of experiencing emotions and reclaiming power through the process.
As Megzz’s star continues to rise, “Through the Motions” promises to be a powerful testament to her artistry and her unwavering commitment to authenticity, resilience, and emotional honesty. This EP is not just a collection of songs; it’s a voyage into the depths of the human experience, an invitation to embrace the complexities of life, and a reminder that even in the darkest moments, there is strength and beauty in “going through the motions.”
