PRAISE FOR ELIZA AND THE DELUSIONALS
“The band further hone their sound with a catchy chorus and solid riffs accompanying Eliza’s powerful voice ever so perfectly.” – Blank Gold Coast
“It’s like stamping on lollipops: there’s energy and force and a few sweet shards flying around too.” – Declan Byrne, Triple J
“The Gold Coast’s finest indie rockers…are back with another stunning track.” – SYN for Tonedeaf
“Eliza & The Delusionals are one of Australia’s most brightly indie-pop luminaries – they’ve got a fuzzy yet undeniably catchy and upbeat sound that screams summer and massive sing-a-longs” – Don’t Bore Us
Sonically gritty and lyrically raw, Eliza and the Delusionals release new single ‘Jackie’, which premiered yesterday via RSPCA Queensland.
An emotive tribute to her beloved pet, the track and its accompanying video juxtapose a sad moment experienced by many, with the undeniable joy found in the companionship of a pet. Teaming up with the RSPCA, Eliza has been able to combine her love for animals with her passions for environmental awareness – tying it all up with an electric indie-rock tune.
Watch ‘Jackie’ here:
“I wrote this song about coping with loss after my dog passed away,” says vocalist Eliza Klatt. “It was probably the saddest I had ever felt. I wasn’t sure if I’d ever be able to write a song that would do justice to how I was feeling, but it felt really right when I finished writing it. Everyone experiences loss and I want this song to help people realise that they we don’t suffer alone.”
More on Eliza and the Delusionals:
Acclaimed indie rock band Eliza & The Delusionals are one of the most exciting groups breaking out of the Australian music scene. Led by colourful front woman Eliza Klatt, they have been making waves since their inception in early 2015, with a sound that has been likened to that of Catfish & The Bottlemen and Alex Lahey.
Capping off a successful 2016 of touring, Eliza & The Delusionals released their second single ‘Salt’, which Triple J’s Dom Alessio described as “a fuzzy stab of power pop that’s sure to brighten your day.” The single landed a nomination for ‘Song of the Year’ at the 2016 Gold Coast Music Awards, and was the first taste of the group’s debut EP ‘The Deeper End’, which also featured punchy singles ‘Deep End’ and ‘Falling Out’.
2017 saw Eliza & The Delusionals performing alongside artists including Grinspoon, Ali Barter, City Calm Down, and UK rock outfit Nothing But Thieves, before heading off on Australian tours supporting Dear Seattle and Killing Heidi.
They were featured in March as a triple j Unearthed feature artist, won the triple j Unearthed NIDA Music Video Comp, and shortly after embarked on their first international tour to Canadian Music Week.
Kicking off 2018 with a spot on the Byron Bay Falls Festival line-up and supporting Tiny Little Houses nationally on their album tour, the Eliza & The Delusionals momentum only seems to be growing.
