Bio

Acclaimed Pottsville/Gold Coast based 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 2017 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, the Eliza & The Delusionals momentum only seems to be growing.

I seriously hear shades of Icehouse in here, as well as the more obvious stuff like Alex Lahey. Another really strong song from a seriously great band.

"got in the shower just so I could cry" oooooft. *wipes cheek* Anyway, like how Eliza and the band are using the tools of big '80s guitar pop to get their message across. Those guitars surely come with their own shoulder pads built in.
