On Motion Sick, Anna Claire Loftis is able to blend equal amounts 1990s pop and atmospheric indie to make something that will resound with listeners long after the song ceases to play. The backing instrumentation is surprisingly deep here, with a wall of sound needing to be unraveled to hear everything that Loftis has placed within. The guitar / drum dynamic plays at the fore, but smart usage of loud and quiet sections during Loftis’s latest keeps listener interest in the composition high. When the music kicks back in with a vengeance at the 2:40 mark, Loftis’s vocals are given a significant boost to their gravity.A delicious change of face from traditional end-of-year fare.
