Perfection In Motion | Posted November 30, 2011
It was a longstanding joke in the music industry that Christian music was always, stylistically, two years behind everything happening in the secular market. A joke that was often all too true. However, an evident shift has occurred in the last several years, where not only has Christian music finally started to rival that of it’s modern mainstream counterparts, but those mainstream counterparts are actually finding themselves looking into the gospel genera for inspiration of their own. We have a plethora of game-changers in this industry to thank for this, and it would be nearly absurd to not list Me In Motion as one of them. 
 
Known for their polished British Rock sound and in-your-face honest lyrics about their faith, Me In Motion has been circulating buzz in the CCM world for quite some time. A large amount of this due to the writing and producing credits of lead vocalist Seth Mosley for a number of artists--Newsboys, Peter Furler, Anthem Lights and Manifest just to name a few. All accolades aside, Seth, alongside band mates Brian Dexter (drums) and Tim Wilson (bass), have made a name for themselves all their own with hits such as “Losers” and “The God I Know.”
 
“I’m trying to write songs that will inspire people to ‘live’ in a way they never have before,” says Seth, “to realize that loving everyone, regardless of circumstance, is what it’s really all about.”
 
Having gone some time without any new material from the talented threesome, you can imagine the delight of fans as the group finally welcomed their latest, the Yes We Can EP, in late 2011. Ushering in a plethora of new sounds alongside their ever present message of living out our faith in a chaotic world.
 
The title track of this mini-project, “Yes We Can,” comes as both an encouragement and poignant challenge to believers. Reminding them of the certainly found in Philippians 4:13 (“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,”) then commissioning them to go forth and live like it’s true.
 
“Back 2 Life” is a catchy song to say the least. An honest cry to God asking Him to revive our faith from the dead, showcases Me In Motion’s new found interest in the pop/electronica circuit and does so in a brilliant fashion. I could easily hear this played on secular radio.
 
The soft and moving “Let Mercy Hold You” encourages the listener as they walk through some of life darkest valley’s. It is lyrically the strongest song on the EP and will become an anthem for those struggling, offering them a very real message of hope: “Let the valley teach you how to sing and still believe that grace is everything you need, it’s only there you’ll see…”
 
This EP comes to a close with “Eye Of The Hurricane,” yet another successful single by the group released to radio earlier this year. Walking along the lines of the previous song, it talks about going through some of life’s biggest storms, but reminds us that even in the eye of the hurricane, we are safe in the arms of Jesus. 
 
Closing Thoughts:
The Yes We Can EP, short but sweet, showcases four songs from what I truly believe is one of the biggest bands in the future of our industry. While they’ve shied away from their typical Brit Rock melodies fans have come to love in this project, they’ve marked new territory for themselves by forging deep into the waters of ultra-modern pop. They are capable of doing both well, but something about these new, fresh sounds makes you want to keep coming back to listen to them again and again. These positive God-honoring lyrics meshed with music that would make any secular artist drool, makes this a highly enjoyable project and one that I’d even go as far as to say is a “must-own” for all hardcore fans of the genre.
