Single Review of Eliza & the Delusionals: “Sentimental”

Looking for a light, enjoyable good time? “Sentimental” is a catchy, jangly, upbeat pop song that has more than a bit of character. You might recognize Eliza & the Delusionals from their energetic, catchy 2019 breakout song “Just Exist,” which has almost 300,000 views on YouTube. Well, if that given you high expectations for this band, don’t worry. You won’t be disappointed by “Sentimental.”

The song starts slowly and airy, but it grows quickly into a guitar-based pop song with a steady, progressive beat and rich wall of sound almost entirely throughout, with minor breaks in the beat only at the exact moments necessary, in addition to a distorted dancing guitar line, particularly late in the song, to give the song texture. If it hadn’t been released in the fall, I would suggest it’s an ideal song for the summer. No matter; just keep it in your playlist until next summer. I’m pretty convinced it has enough staying power that you’ll still appreciate it by then.

Looking Ahead
