A solo project by Yuka Kurihara, a Bristol-based Japanese female singer song
writer who also sings for the post-rock band This Is My Normal State and the
electronic duo Melodique.

Having started learning cello and piano at the age of 5, Yuka has been
enjoying and playing different styles of music – classical, pop,
electronic, folk and downtempo. In her late teenage, she started singing in
a trip-hop band in Tokyo, which would later be a trigger for her to settle
in Bristol UK in 2006. In 2008, she began creating music as her solo
project üka.

üka’s music is composed with different artistic elements of sounds such as
classical, acid-folk, Bristol-sound and jazz, although it has gentle vocal
melodies on top of those.

On the 17th of September, her long-awaited debut album ‘Lullaby for the
Evil’ will be released.
