Manchester’s own Della XOZ heads to The Lodge on 22nd March in support of the DELLAIRIUM EP release.
Tickets available Thursday 8th Feb at 10am 🔥

Growing up on the outskirts of Manchester, Daniella feels that he city’s strong indie rock
legacy has had an “inevitable” impact. On her. Equally significant was the music of her
Congolese heritage-with its upbeat rhythms, driving bass and intricate electric guitar riffs
a constant presence in her childhood. It’s in this intersection between the genres where
Daniella grounds her sonic identity. At age 13, armed with a cheap mic and free software
from the internet, Daniella. Wrote and produced her first song. With her formative
teenage years navigated during a global pandemic, it’s little wonder that Daniella sets
classic coming-of-age concerns to the backdrop of wider social issues and commentary,
having described her ethos as DellaXOZ “to capture the fleeting emotions and multi–
dimensionality of the teenage experience.” For DellaXOZ, this naturally extends to world
issues-and she rejects the narrative of apathy and distraction misassigned to her
generation, galvanised by bands like Bikini Kill and La Tigre have to write her own“ rage-y,
riot girl feminist songs. ”It’s exactly this kind of boldness, conviction and bright and wilful
alt-pop experimentation which will continue to see DellXOZ pickup new heroes, with plenty
more to come.
