Eliza & The Delusionals is a Northern New South Wales/Gold Coast band founded by Singer-guitarist Eliza Klatt in 2015.
After a slew of well-received early singles, the band’s climb was kickstarted in earnest by 2017 debut EP The Deeper End. A potent mix of buzz-saw guitars, ear-worm melodies and Klatt’s undeniable vocal hooks, singles such as “Salt” instantly caught the attention of national broadcaster triple j. The group’s sweetly snarling, anthemic brand of indie rock has led to supports with artists such as Grinspoon, Nothing But Thieves, Dear Seattle and Killing Heidi, appearances at landmark festivals such as BIGSOUND, Falls Festival and Canadian Music Week, and major radio support both locally and internationally.
As a first taste of the groups’ forthcoming second EP being released by Cooking Vinyl Australia, ‘Just Exist’ has connected in a big way, particularly in the US and Canada, with Alt Nation/SiriusXM crowning it their ‘Critical Cut’ and adding the song to high rotation. The band’s Spotify listenership has jumped by nearly 100% and a whopping 400+% in America, while “Just Exist” has exceeded 1.2 million streams.
