2021 continued to be a fruitful year for Eliza & The Delusionals, the band capitalising on momentum generated in 2020 off the back of their sophomore EP A STATE OF LIVING IN AN OBJECTIVE REALITY. Singles “YOU,” “SAVE ME,” and “NOTHING YET” further propelled Eliza & The Delusionals onto the radars of Australian and international industry tastemakers alike as their profile elevated. “SAVE ME” alone has generated over 750k combined streams worldwide, receiving radio and playlisting love including 30+ editorial playlist spots and the cover of Spotify’s Front Left playlist as well.
Eliza & The Delusionals’ releases throughout 2021 further positioned the group for ongoing success; dedicated airplay and rotation adds from triple j, as well as streaming love across major platforms confirming that 2022 was sizing up to be something special.
Of the release of NOW AND THEN, Eliza & The Delusionals are amped to finally have this special collection of music out into the world.
“I think this album was the best thing to come out of the pandemic for us. We had just dealt with a huge loss of all of our touring in America, and when we got back to Australia we both were feeling quite lost and sad,” says Klatt. “We took the opportunity to build a studio at home and bunker down and turn all of the feelings that we had been experiencing for the past two years into songs.”
June 2021 saw Eliza & The Delusionals tour Australia alongside The VANNS, with rescheduled remaining dates set to take place across March and April this year. The release of “GIVE YOU EVERYTHING” comes as Eliza & The Delusionals prepare to embark on their rescheduled Australian 2022 headline tour. The release of NOW AND THEN also coincides with the band’s return to North America, performing at this year’s Bottlerock Festival in the Napa Valley.
