Breaking down the door of a brand new year, Eliza & The Delusionals return in 2022 excitedly anticipating their busiest chapter yet. Today, the band shares their new single ‘GIVE YOU EVERYTHING’, the final teaser of their highly anticipated debut album, Now And Then, out this May.
The single is another flawless production from Eliza & The Delusionals, who have consistently been proving themselves as a group with longevity and legacy quality to their name. Effervescent and striking a gorgeous balance between the contemporary and nostalgic, Eliza & The Delusionals spent 2021 proving that an unpredictable world climate wouldn’t stop their creative hustle.
2022 is their time to shine.
As with the rest of the Now And Then record, ‘Give You Everything’ was recorded between Brisbane’s Airlock Studios, and the studios of acclaimed producer Kon Kersting (Tones And I, Mallrat, The Jungle Giants) and also that of Eliza Klatt and Kurt Skuse.The song itself was written between sessions in Los Angeles with award winning songwriters Sarah Aarons (Zedd, The Rubens, Childish Gambino) and John Hill (Cage The Elephant, Lykke Li, Charli XCX), and back home on the Australian East Coast.
‘Give You Everything’, in its rhythmic progressions and bright emotional swells, provided an opportunity for Eliza and Kurt’s songwriting flair to this international session dynamic.
“Myself and Eliza wrote this song with Sarah Aarons and John Hill when we were in LA at the start of 2020. We were sitting around John’s studio talking with Sarah about how we both have had similar bitter experiences within the music industry with certain people taking advantage of our benevolence.
It was nice to be able to open up to someone who could also relate to that situation which made the whole writing process feel really natural and organic. It’s a collective favourite for us on the album and it really shaped the rest of the record thematically and sonically.”
KURT SKUSE, ELIZA & THE DELUSIONALS
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. 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.”
