Delialh Bon - Brat Punk influenced Hip Hop. Fusing Punk & Rap together, with driving fuzz bass, rapping & throaty screaming. My lyrics address womxns' issues with female empowerment as a main theme throughout my songs!
For fans of Eminem, Ashnikko, Rico Nasty and P!nk - Delilah Bon began her venture into Punk-fuelled Hip Hop in the summer of 2020. 'I was touring with my punk band at the time (Hands Off Gretel) and night after night I was hearing stories from young girls getting harassed in my crowds. When I spoke out online I was met with resistance and it infuriated me. I had all of these words flowing out of me too fast to write down, I programmed a beat and started rapping for the first time; it was my motivation during a dark time.'
Coming from a Punk Rock background Delilah fuses Nu-Metal guitar riffs and screaming vocals with Melodic Rap and trashy Hip Hop beats, creating a sound that's hard to categorise. 'The music I make is like Cardi B fronting Slipknot, it's a mesh of all the styles that have influenced me leading up to now. I flow between two personas - sometimes I'm sweet and sassy, sometimes I'm screaming at you with an axe'.
Taking to her home studio to write and self-produce her music, Delilah began writing about social issues, in particular how womxn are treated within today's society. 'I'd be walking down the street paranoid some guy was following me, holding my hand over my drink in the club, worrying my friends wouldn't make it home. it's all been said before, women have been fighting since way back before I was born but the same issues remain and we've got a long way to go. Delilah represents strength and empowerment and I'm here for anyone who needs that'.
“I wrote this song about my lonely days at school. Eating dinner alone, hiding in the school toilets, dealing with bullies, and battling with teachers who constantly discouraged my dreams of becoming a famous singer someday. This song is about realising my dreams and becoming famous and all those who bullied and ridiculed me wanting to come back into my life… “All those years sitting on my own at school and they want to sit with me, now I’m cool.” ‘
