deryk
Sync
Latest Release: “WOMb” EP

Named after her talented accordion-playing grandfather, Deryk is the moody electronic pop solo project of London-born, Auckland-based songwriter Madeline Bradley. She started to use the Deryk name around 2015, after which point she enlisted the production techniques of Justyn Pilbrow to achieve the sounds that she heard in her head. By late 2020, Universal New Zealand had issued her first EP, WOMb, a collection of calm but woozy tracks not too far removed from the output of Lorde or James Blake.

Latest Release: “Bad Meditation” LP
