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. Since moving to London, she’s worked with some of the countries best producers and songwriters developing her craft to an outstanding level for her age. Her first few releases Nothing Can Stop Us Now and Animal have racked up hundreds of thousands of streams across Spotify and Youtube, while her critical acclaim comes from the likes of Wonderland, Clash and Popjustice.
The next step is some larger artist projects for 2019. The first of these is an EP in February featuring the new single “Holy Ground” On the new single, Delena states:
Holy ground is my idea that there’s a place in everyone’s heart which no one can reach except you! Where we can escape to when things become too much. It’s a beautiful place where there’s no pain because it’s completely untouchable and safe! So the song is a kind of prayer in a way and I wanted to give it a bit of church-like feel. We have a great tradition of religious singing in Ukraine. It’s a very special sound and although this doesn’t sound like that kind of singing at all it was my inspiration.
