Indietronic duo ERA C – aka Sofia Insua and Mirza Ramic – muse on the speedy nature of cars and love affairs in their latest single “0-60 mph.” This is the type of song you turn on while thinking about a relationship that is moving with a breakneck intensity. The sultry vocals of Insua paired with the silky production yield a subtly risqué soundscape that is cinematically introspective:
On the track, Insua reflected: “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.”
The track is from the duo’s upcoming album Deliria, which will be out on May 28th.
