Delilah Holliday, North London’s homegrown DIY icon, makes downtempo electronic art pop with added layers of trip hop, with an intoxicating medley of heady synth. Sonically she’s transportive, but in her lyrics Delilah keeps things grounded. She revels in otherworldly sounds and visuals that play with the abstract, the psychedelic and the conceptual, but the lived experiences she mines for creativity remain at the core of what she does. Growing up on Holloway Road and beginning her creative endeavours with family members has clearly impacted this, and a sense of community provides her bedrock.
Her band, Skinny Girl Diet, which she founded at the age of 14 with her sister Ursula and their cousin Amelia, were a staple of the 2010’s UK indie-punk landscape. She then successfully transitioned to her current solo moniker with the release of her debut single ‘Babylon’ in 2018.
In a short time, she’s worked with some of the best across both the music and fashion world including Neneh Cherry, Vivienne Westwood, Ghost Poet and more. In 2021 alone she hosted a ‘Goddess Energy Experience’ show at The Old Blue Last with Tyson and Grove, headlined St Pancras Old Church, partnered with Marshall Amps, and she performed an exclusive A/V live session with FACT Magazine. She’s also presented her own monthly NTS Radio show since 2016. New EP ‘Invaluable Vol. 1’ follows her signing to One Little Independent Records.
