Following on from her critically acclaimed offerings "Running" ft. Ghetts and "Hard Life", the Motion Sick EP fleshes out Pip’s thoughts on the wider world and her inner life. The unreleased tracks "Braid It Back", "Sad Girls" featuring Gaidaa and "Best Things" see Pip's confessional lyricism through a prism of a jazz, boom-bam and hip hop, featuring production from Joice (Jorja Smith, Loyle Carner, Stormzy) and Josh Crocker (Celeste, Kali Uchis, Gotts Street Park), offering refreshingly blunt thoughts on the state of the Black experience in the UK, identity, loss and family legacy.
Speaking on the EP, Pip states: “I have often felt lost when things around me have started to change. In recent times I've realized I'm simply 'Motion Sick'. My core self is still there but without change, there cannot be any growth. 'Motion Sick' is about the various changes in my life. With this change, I have tried to find comfort in the simple things.”
Pip has developed an enviable reputation for her ability to reflect on political and social issues in a deeply personal and evocative way. Displaying a vocal and lyrical talent that’s hard to come by, “Running” tackled the realities of “being black in an unequal white, western world.”
Her effortless performance on COLORS with her debut "Make Me Cry" has meanwhile racked up north of 4.5M views, and with the likes of Jorja Smith calling her an artistic muse, her sold-out UK tour in October sees Pip defining herself as a thrillingly potent and compelling voice.
In only 3 years, the 23-year-old Manchester artist has developed into one of our most thoughtful homegrown talents, and with the release of Motion Sick, one of the UK’s most exciting new voices.
