A knock-out debut single from Montreal musician Habitat Canada, “Motionless” boasts a vibe polar opposite to its title. A chirpy industrial house joint made to make robots move, Habitat Canada’s first-ever release is anything but ordinary.

Guided by deep synths and an edgy electronic ebb and flow, “Motionless” is contemporary dance music at its freshest. Indie vocal chops echo throughout disco rhythms and brooding instrumental bridges, blending together modern electronica’s most forward-thinking soundscapes. A riptide through the fabric of nu-disco and deep house, “Motionless” is genuinely brilliant.
