With a rock-pop vibe, glittering piano lines, and strong vocals, The Time Spent On The Inside is a breakout record for Eliza & The Delusionals. The EP is reminiscent of the indie sound of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and draws on influences like Catfish & The Bottlemen and Paramore.
The Time Spent On The Inside is a collection of songs about self-growth, which were inspired by vocalist Eliza Klatt’s personal reflections on life.
“All of the songs follow the same idea that I haven’t really seen too much of the world in my life. Those feelings of being in the same space for so long are really what drove this release,” she said.
Tracks Outside and Safety really speak to this idea of breaking free. Outside is an upbeat tune you can bop along to while Safety has a more wistful tone. Killjoy is easily a standout track that sounds like it could be the gentler little sister of No Doubt’s I’m Just A Girl.
Overall, The Time Spent On The Inside combines fun melodies with wistful lyrics to create tunes that implore you to embrace all of what life has to offer – to escape and explore!
