His track “Sabotage” is dramatic, catchy, and euphoric. It’s the sound of your favourite hangout spot; the best coffee shop in town. From the moment you’re hit with his dream pop vocals, and then street-level lyrics, you can’t help but keep listening

There is a story in it that relates to how we battle with ourselves based on the stories and walls that we make to keep ourselves safe from hurting ourselves, which are triggered by our own battle with ourselves. If we hold on to these walls and stories, then it is often just a consequence of our self-sabotage that leads to the destruction of our own lives.
The personal explanation from Jones about the song is very interesting also, take a look:
”That’s what this song is for me. It’s the battle I was going through internally when my relationship hit the 2-year mark and we were questioning if our core values and relationship goals lined up. I was fighting with should I say screw it, walk away, and Sabotage myself because I was afraid to really dig deep and address what was blocking me from opening up fully, Or put in the work and break through the stories I tell myself. I chose to walk away in SABOTAGE which made me see through the lies I was telling myself. Writing this song helped remind me that putting in the work is always the better path.”
