Hearts tripping on an exercise wheel I feel it in my lungs, in my lungs Forget the world, we start to get real I feel it in my lungs Gods tripping on an exercise wheel I feel it in my bones, in my bones This i a race, it’s part of the deal I feel it in my bones, in my bones This is how i’m dangling in, in the air, in the air This is how i’m match your glare, for glare, for glare This is how i’m dangling in, in the end, in the end This is how i’m match your glare, for glare, for glare Gods tripping on an exercise wheel I feel it in my bones, in my bones This i a race, it’s part of the deal I feel it in my bones, in my bones

No matter how i got there My worries stacked high I'm waiting for all solicitude's to pass me by My bloods under pressure, but i never say die So i hold on and i hold on, salvation calls No matter how i got there My worries stacked high I'm waiting for love, it's all for love, it's all for love My bloods under pressure, but i never say die So i hold on and i hold on, salvation calls No matter how i got there My worries stacked high I'm waiting for love, it's all for love, it's all for love My bloods under pressure, but i never say die So i hold on and i hold on, salvation calls

Live With all the eyes wide open Speak all the words unspoken Let's do our best and hit reset It's all that's left It's all we have That's not how it ends That's not how it ends That's not how it See Why we act so careless Cause we belong together Don't want it to end Don't want it

about

Influenced by the social and political climate of the modern world, the 11-track LP is inspired by the artist’s acute awareness of society’s dependence on technology, critiquing the social media bubble responsible for the civic polarisation seen globally. Taking the listener on an immersive, emotional journey, Perspectives is filled with dark yet hopeful compositions, each representing their own personal story. The album title refers to a problem we all face: having differing perspectives on the same situation, which in turn leads to conflict.

Encouraging listeners to spend less time behind computer screens and more time outside in nature, many of the album’s samples were recorded from MOTSA’s own environment. “Differing perspectives on issues is something we are regularly confronted with in our lives - the fact that this often then leads to conflict is something I have felt closely in my own life. I feel it is a problem that is growing in an ever more egocentric world” MOTSA explains “Maybe if we can develop more empathy as a species we can grow and reverse this trend. The album is a collection of little stories and reflections of how I perceive our world and the problems we face."

Everything from the sounds of children playing in the sands of a Balearic beach to crickets in the grass and bells recorded from his father’s apartment in Moscow are utilised, with the producer also recording and sampling his own voice to create distant, choir-like melodies.

The record marks MOTSA’s fourth release since 2016’s Petricolour - named after the label he set up to release it. The EP’s lead track ‘Colours’ has amassed over 4 million Spotify streams to date, while his following single “Falling” received support from Lauren Laverne on BBC Radio 6. In the three years since, the artist has embarked on a world tour, playing shows in South Africa, Mexico, Portugal, Poland and his native Austria as his stock continued to rise.

MOTSA’s signature sound – a soulful yet driven harmonic blend – is present throughout Perspectives, continuing to propel the multi-talented artist to the highest acclaim into 2019 and beyond.
