Sofia Insua was born in Guatemala and is currently based in Berlin, Germany along with Mirza Ramic, who was born in Bosnia & Herzegovina and lived most of his adult life in Boston, USA before moving to Germany.

A transnational creation that embodies a unique selection of influences in a delicate offering to all that life has to offer, DELIRIA is an ode to travel, and discovery. Finding its home somewhere between romantic elements, bitter points of distrust and hope for the future, the LP envelopes all with its wavering electronic beats and irresistible vocals. ‘don’t call me from Los Angeles’ is a harsh look at communications with a missing love, driven by deep basslines and irrefutable lyrics. ERA C proves to be a captivating mix of unusual tempos to both express and lull away hardships.
Speaking of the LP, Sofia Insua tells us: “DELIRIA is about distance and its sneaky way of censoring the heart, preventing it from feeling. I wrote the tracks during various transitional periods in my life, so I was going through change – adapting, looking for the next steps, and finding ways for love to survive. Some of the most defining lyrics on the record popped up in my head while walking busy streets, while travelling, while in motion. I was discovering myself geographically and through the songs that ended being ‘DELIRIA’.”
