Elia – ‘The Question’

Elia is now one of Italy’s most promising indie artists, and when he started making music back at the age of 22 he committed himself to his art. Music became his entire motivation and inspiration, and he lived life to the fullest. His signature sound is a blend of Latin, Alternative, and Pop – all of which come through in the deep drums and smooth strings of ‘The Question’.

The video for ‘The Question’ was shot in Milano Marittima, on the northeast coast of Italy. The wooded area, tall grasses, and dome of an abandoned disco establish the post-apocalyptic battle scene aesthetic. Fire wielding fighters clad in leather, feathers, fur, and black face paint fit perfectly into the scene. We see Elia, a prisoner of war, his hands chained behind his back, menacing guards at his side. His captors personify Elia’s inner struggle over love as they scream in his face while he sings “Maybe a dreamer too weak to let you go.”

One of female warriors serves as Elia’s love interest, and we see him throughout the video struggling with the idea of pursuing her or giving up the fight. Closeups of Elia looking straight to camera add to the intensity and overall emotional quality of the song.
