We caught up with Eliza and Kurt from Australian indie rockers Eliza and the Delusionals, who are in lockdown due to recently returning to the country from the USA where they were on tour with Silversun Pickups.
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.
In February, the band was thrilled to be adopted into the Fender family as part of their Fender Next campaign, which assists up and coming artists worldwide. Fender Next artists receive gear and instruments along with opportunities to reach new fans through Fender performances and live events.
As a first taste of the group’s second EP, 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% overall and a whopping 400+% in America, while “Just Exist” has exceeded 600k streams. Recently crowned Amazon’s Music’s “Weekly One” and “Song of the Week” in the States, the band’s Shazams have also surged by more than 900%.
Having signed with renowned US agency APA for North America, the doors are well and truly starting to open for Eliza & The Delusionals internationally.
