Eliza & The Delusionals - Just Exist

Eliza & The Delusionals first U.S. debut single "Just Exist" recently hit number one on SiriusXM's Alt Nation. As their music video begins you can't help but compare the song to the Foo Fighter's "Everlong." Unlike the goofiness of the music video for Everlong the music video for "Just Exist" keeps it simple with a series of candid black and white images of the band just chilling together.
 
Eliza Klatt has a pretty voice, almost like Mazzy Star, and her music is very mood setting. It definitely has a cruise down a coastal highway feel to it.  About 2:50 in the music doubles in volume and becomes much more of a rock ballad. Both lyrically and structurally the song is very simple making it a possible perfect pop friendly entry for radio. I was not surprised to learn the Silversun Pickups have selected Eliza & The Delusionals to support them on their 2020 tour. I could see their music being in a number of playlists in that style. In particular "Just Exist" is very comparable to The Silversun Pickups major hit "Lazy Eye." Lyrically according to the band website "Just Exist" explores the idea that artists need their emotional dark side for the purposes of tapping into the creative. Some intense subject matter that leaves you wondering where the band will go next as they can only grow from here.

    Lil Skies - PlayThisAtMyFuneral (Featuring Landon Cube) Lil Skies and Landon Cube linked up again. This is a duo that never disappoints. When I first heard their collaborations on Red Roses and Nowadays circa 2018, I thought it was blasphemy that the two would go on to focus on their own solo careers independent of each other.… Read more
