What happens when you combine a unique trip-hop influenced style with soaring pop vocals? After hearing ERA C’s latest single, ‘0-60 mph’, we’re convinced the answer is magic. Lifted from their upcoming EP, DELIRIA, the single ecompasses the sense of freedom and adventure that occurs when you’re on an open road with your lover.
“I wrote the lyrics for ‘0-60 mph’ during my first visit to Berlin, Germany as a tourist. I remember Mirza and I went to a random cafe because he needed some fast internet. It got me thinking about how fast cars and lovers both have the ability to go from nothing to everything. I wanted to capture how easy it is to fall; going from stillness to violent speed. Say, on a road trip, driving through endless highways with no speed limit – you look sideways to catch your lover on the wheel, taking you both there.”
Reminiscent of Lana Del Rey styled vocals, ERA C is the combined project of Sofia Insua (hailing from Guatemala) and Mirza Ramic (coming from the lands of Bosnia). The two are both based in Germany. The two both have a history of working with unique projects, as Sofia was once part of the established band Easy Easy and Mirza still makes up one half of the duo, Arms and Sleepers. If the album release date is just too far away, we suggest you check out the title track, released now and on Spotify, as well as the Arms and Sleepers edit of the song.
