UV is the solo project of London-based artist & award-winning composer Marina Elderton.
Last week saw the release of new single ‘Wilt’. Following the 2018 single ‘Defender’ and 2019’s ‘Joys Of Pain’, ‘Wilt’ is yet another demonstration of UV’s haunting combination of powerful vocals and hypnotically ambient soundscapes. Once again co-produced by Knut Jonas Sellevold, ‘Wilt’ sees Elderton’s distinct vocals draped over interlaced harmonies, guitar strands, electronic textures and pulsing rhythms.
Previously fronting ethereal-psych band KULL and electronic duo White Russia, Marina Elderton is also co-founder of the female sound artist collective Erinyes, has also composed soundtracks for Film4, Royal Television Society award winning documentaries, and shorts, and commercially for the likes of Lynx, NBA and Cadburys.
Supported by the PRS Women Make Music Foundation, the debut EP ‘Defender’ will be released on July 19th. The accompanying artwork for the EP is designed in collaboration with embroidery artist Scott Ramsay Kyle- also known for his work embroidering homoerotic magazine covers (https://www.scottramsaykyle.work).
On that same date (July 19th) UV will also make her debut live appearance at the Old Parish of St Pancras.
