The definition of Limerence is "a state of mind which results from a romantic attraction to another person and typically includes obsessive thoughts and fantasies." That is exactly what Italian experimental musician Erio is tapping into throughout his music, but is exploring in detail on the new video and single for his song of the same name.

Lyrically, Erio is direct, almost childish in his unabashed desire for human connection, as he is expressing his base desire as it courses through his body. In 'Limerence' this magnetic attraction is so strong that it leaves him physically compromised, but emotionally amplified. Erio's avant-garde pop production is spacious yet weighty, allowing infinite space to express himself, while remaining tethered to reality. Within this, his unique vocal range is allowed to roam free and become warped, while staying connected to his base desires. The overall effect is like fear and excitement coming to a head-on collision inside the body.

This is then brought into the visual field by the artful black and white video which accompanies the track. Erio explains the concept of the video best, saying: "I surrounded myself with naked men and women to help interpret the romanticism and obsession expressed in the song in a series of sensual and at times unsettling scenes. Each subplot shows a different side to the anguish and paranoia caused by obsessive love, the darkest side of which is represented as a black thick liquid trickling on the characters throughout the song."

'Limerence' comes from Erio's upcoming second album Inesse later this year. It's an album that's full of moments collected from his various travels and relationships, and brought into life by his production skills, aided by the likes of Yakamoto Kotzuga, Ioshi, and Will Rendle.
