Eliza & The Delusionals
“I’m pre-ordering the Eliza & The Delusionals inevitable singles compilation because each one has been a certified hit!” – Dave Ruby Howe (triple j Unearthed)
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.
2016 saw Eliza & The Delusionals release their debut single, ‘The Ground’ which was met with acclaim from fans and critics alike. Embarking on two Australian tours throughout the year, they capped off 2016 with the release of a new single ‘Salt’ which triple j’s Dom Alessio described as, “a fuzzy stab of power pop that’s sure to brighten your day.”
2017 has seen Eliza & The Delusionals supporting Ali Barter, Polish Club and UK rock outfit Moose Blood, before heading off on Australian tours supporting Dear Seattle and Killing Heidi.
“Last year we got to play some of our dream venues around the country as well as head overseas for Canadian Music Week. We were also lucky enough to head out on the road with legends Killing Heidi and Dear Seattle and play with some of our favourite Aussie bands. The video for 19 is a big montage of all the crazy shit we got up to!” – Eliza Klatt
“19 was one of the first tracks I had written for the EP. I was 19 at the time and I was searching for inspiration. A lot of the lyrics make reference to the feeling of repetition, making the same decisions, going to the same places and not feeling inspired by any of it because it’s all so familiar.” – Eliza Klatt
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. With ‘Salt’ landing a nomination for ‘Song Of The Year’ at the 2017 Gold Coast Music Awards, the Eliza & The Delusionals momentum only seems to be growing.
