Jony Shelby Claws Back to Sanity on “Motions”

Have you ever felt like you were just going through the motions of life? I know I have and, all jokes aside, it sucks. It happened to a lot of us when the pandemic hit, as everyone had to get used to a new normal. Jony Shelby encapsulates this feeling and the return to sanity and recovery on “Motions.” The way that the track spills over, production wise, towards the end feels like how many of us felt when restrictions were lifted and we could visit each other again. We had a sense of joy and elation that still hasn’t worn off.

However, like many alt-R&B songs, there’s still a darkness to it. Specifically, how Shelby describes the process it took for him to get back where he wanted to be is a bit darker than the bouncy production would suggest. It’s a journey in of itself, coming out of a pandemic. It’s one that’s worth it in the end. Check out the song below and support dope music in all its forms.
