With their Australian tour underway and their debut album 'Now And Then' in the wings, waiting to be unleashed, Eliza & The Delusionals return today sharing the lead single from the studio album: the addictive ‘Bed Song’.
Released as a follow up to February’s ‘Give You Everything’ and ‘Halloween’ at the top of the month, ‘Bed Song’ is another masterclass in how songwriters Eliza Klatt and Kurt Skuse balance emotionally driven lyricism with fresh and dynamic songwriting arrangements. As an indication of what the wider album is like, ‘Bed Song’ is a prime example of Eliza & The Delusionals in their natural element - harnessing rich indie and alt-rock influences in producing something completely their own.
A song about relationships and the different ways we navigate them, ‘Bed Song’ was recorded between Brisbane’s Airlock Studios and the home studio Kurt and Eliza built during the initial waves of the pandemic; as well as the studio of acclaimed producer Konstantin Kersting (Tones And I, Mallrat, The Jungle Giants).
Speaking about the song, the band explained, “'Bed Song' was an idea that started off so differently, and I'm really glad we came back to it and worked on changing it because it quickly became one of my favourite songs on the record. This song is really about Kurt and myself finding similarities in our past relationships and bringing those ideas together in a way where we could understand each other's perspectives.”
Their journey to this point has been one of many successes in the face of constant pauses to scheduled tour and relocation plans. Since the release of their 2020 EP 'A State Of Living In An Objective Reality', Eliza & The Delusionals have been consistently establishing themselves as an Australian act with legacy potential; dropping a string of singles throughout 2021 and 2022 that bolstered their reputation as a vibrant powerhouse.
The release of singles ‘You’, ‘Save Me’ and ‘Nothing Yet’ elevated Eliza & The Delusionals’ presence in Australia and abroad (‘Save Me’ accruing over 750k combined streams worldwide alone, as well as over thirty editorial playlist spots and the cover of Front Left on Spotify). The band currently enjoys over 92k monthly listeners on Spotify, with recent release ‘Give You Everything’ racking up over 109k worldwide streams since its release and the official music video accruing over 15.8k views to date.
