Born in Kiev, Delena relocated to a Switzerland school at just 12 years old and went on to London, to study at the London Institute Of Contemporary Music Performance. Music was always in her veins, through her relation to Ukrainian screenwriter, film producer, and director Alexander Dovzhenko. Moving to London was a new lease of life for Delena, who, inspired by the likes of Eta James, Ella Fitzgerald and Queen to name a few, began to develop her distinctive, sassy style of pop.
That said, the Ukrainian-born singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist is no stranger to hard work. Despite humble beginnings she’s both fought and earned her way to her current position on the precipice of stardom Her previous releases ‘Nothing Can Stop Us Now’ and ‘Animal’ have been regularly supported by Popjustice, as well as praised by the likes of Wonderland, Clash Magazine and Spindle. She’s also streaming well on Spotify with regular playlist support building new fans across the globe.
Ahead of her brand new EP this year, Delena has brought in the remix talents of some of the most impressive, electronic talents on remix duties for her last release. Oscuro is now considered one of the UK’s most impressive rising talents, with support across the board from BBC 6Music, Clash Magazine and The Line of Best Fit. It’s a suitable, worthwhile collaboration that’s birthed a piano-led, soulful production with a 4×4 foundation. Sure to go down well with fans of Bonobo and Maribou State.
