Rising Pop Powerhouse Delena Chosen as Tour Support for Shakespears Sister

Up and coming pop songwriter Delena has just been chosen by Shakespears Sister, to perform all dates on their “Ride Again” UK tour – She’s had over 5 million views on YouTube alone, and been featured by Popjustice, Wonderland, Clash and Official Charts.

In the past year, London-Via-Ukraine pop songwriter Delena has been prolific in her releasing of fierce pop music, accompanied by stunning, aesthetic music videos have racked up over 5 million streams, growing her audience exponentially worldwide.

Born in Kiev before relocating to Switzerland, before eventually 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.

Last year’s breakout singles ‘Nothing Can Stop Us Now’, and ‘Animal’, cemented her place on the pop music map. Far from resting on her laurels, she smashed into 2019 with her ‘Delena’ EP, which included the singles ‘Holy Ground’ and ‘Perfectly Designed’. Each single has gone to be streamed more than a million times each, securing the raw songwriting talent a hungry audience for what’s to come. The hard-working talent then dropped the emphatic follow-up singles ‘I Am The Fire’ and ‘One Night’ to triumphant support from Popjustice, Official Charts, Atwood Magazine and a number of key Spotify playlists. Now gearing up towards another EP nothing seems to be standing in the young artists way.

Goth-Pop duo Shakespears Sister are returning to the stage this Autumn for perhaps one of them most unexpected reunions in pop history. The 80s legends are performing 13 dates across the UK in their “Ride Again” tour, giving die-hard fans the opportunity to see an act that defined an era. Starting on Halloween in Nottingham and continuing for a month to Brighton, the enigmatic duo have been thorough in their search for the perfect support across their highly anticipated tour.
