While gearing up for the release of VISIONS on April 9th, genre-bending artist Motorbike James has shared a groovy new track called “Automatic.”
The new single comes packed with a driven beat and dreamy synths that are sure to get you bopping along as Motorbike James sings of not loving yourself enough to be true to those around you, or even with yourself.
“I’ve spent a lot of years on emotional autopilot – hands off the controls, at the mercy of my own volatility,” Motorbike James explains of the tune. “‘Automatic’ 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.”

“I wrote the bones of this track ten years ago, following a breakup with a long term girlfriend. Around the same time, I became fast friends with this cool musician named Julie and asked her to lay down a vocal on this tune I was working on. It was probably the second or third time we’d ever hung out,” Motorbike James continues. “From there, ‘Automatic’ joined an endless catalogue of unfinished music. Little did I know that nearly a decade later Julie would be my wife!”
