Tel Aviv’s Eatliz play a classic brand of atmospheric indie rock that has fueled great popularity in their Israeli homeland, as their debut LP Violently Delicate was a popular fave in 2008 on radio there. That success translated to an invitation to 2008’s Popkomm in Germany and a release of their album there as well as in Austria and Switzerland. Further exposure through MTV has moved the band up the ladder and, in 2011, they will be making their SXSW debut. Eatliz’s sound encompasses a satifyingly broad range of influences such as Portishead, the Concretes, Mr. Bungle and Björk. The new animated video for “Lose This Child” was created by the team of Yuval & Merav Nathan, who directed the massive viral sensation (more than 16 million YouTube views!) that was Oren Lavie’s “Her Morning Elegance”. The brooding mood and simple imagery of animated turtles crawling across a deserted nighttime beach ideally suits the song’s essential melancholy. Eatliz’s upcoming album, Teasing Nature, will release this summer.
