When Deryk released her first single, Call You Out, a slow, emotive track that entered New Zealand's pop realm last year, she cemented the fact that her music wouldn’t have any boxy simplicity.

It was dark, wrenching and multifaceted, and full of feeling from the UK-born Auckland artist otherwise known as Madeline Bradley. Here, she shares the songs she goes back to. Have Spotify? You can also listen to Deryk's full playlist via the streaming platform.
