New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Delena is fast making a name for herself as one of the UK's most exciting new names in pop, with alternative aesthetic music videos. This Ukrainian-born singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist is no stranger to hard work. Her perseverance and strength certainly comes out in her music, and new track 'SOS' is no exception. Listen here
The musicality of the song itself ensures that 'SOS' can easily hold its own amongst the greatest of break-up anthems. The lead-in to the chorus is characterised by a marching drum, signalling Delena's powerful intention and, when the chorus finally kicks in, it's with a killer bassline which sets the track off, ensuring that this is set to be a staple of the dancefloor this summer. The Daft Punk/Nile Rodgers-esque bassline is relentless throughout the rest of the song, complementing the vocal melody perfectly to create the ultimate dance track with a strong urgent message.
With 'SOS', Delena taps into a common consciousness in an unsettled world - that of emergency. Using carefully chosen lexical choices, Delena has crafted the ultimate anthem for a world in a state of panic. 'SOS' is both the cry for help of a damsel in distress, and also the answering call. Full of raw female attitude, it's an unapologetic pop hit that's sure to resonate with audiences across the globe. It's a song of empowerment in which, by admitting that help is needed, you can also save yourself.
"My hope is that I can release a strong energy with my music" Delena says. "I want to prove to others that wherever you come from you can succeed. There are no boundaries anymore in the world and right now we all need to dream of doing something extraordinary. I come from Ukraine, a country that has always suffered and struggled yet proud like me. I want to say, 'Guys, it's okay. You just have to have faith and reach out.
'SOS' was recorded in Brighton and London and produced by Paul Harris (Dirty Vegas) and Toby Scott (Kaiser Chiefs, Little
Mix, Girls Aloud).
