Delilah Bon is, in my opinion, a true superhero. She is not afraid of anyone and is precisely the heroine the world needs right now. In the past, I have likened her to punk styles, Eminem, and others, but the bottom line is she is Delilah Bon and there ain’t no one quite like her! Delilah’s new single “Brat” kicks off with a spoken word section that kind of sets the tone for the track. But the opening salvo in the first verse smashes through misogynist walls and glass ceilings that currently hold back women, girls, gay and trans people among others. It is not just the industrial hammer drill sounds and beats that do the smashing it is the lyrics, which for me provide the opening to the Delilah manifesto, “It’s me, it’s Delilah. Coming in with the flavor. Coming in with the real shit, Delilah the savior. Delilah the queer coming into your living room. Screaming, “I don’t think so”. Yeah you probably never, probably ever. Met a woman as dedicated, whatever the weather, to bringing rage to the rooms of the girls just like me. Oh, baby, I don’t think so” Has there ever been more anger in the opening verse of a song? Maybe the Pistols and the Clash came close, but Delilah takes that righteous anger into the stratosphere. The song grabs you by the throat and shakes you until you rightly succumb to the message. Is this the best Delilah track to date? Very possibly.
Delilah has finally begun to take the world by storm. Two of her songs (“Dead Man Don’t Rape” and “I Don’t Listen To You”) now have more than one million streams, “Brat” has more than 60,000 Spotify Streams after just a few days, and she has appeared on prime time French TV, she will be playing festivals and gigs outside the UK soon and that is just the highlights. Should misogynists and their ilk be scared? Yes they fucking should, we are all equal and Delilah is a true champion of real equality and true inclusion for repressed minorities. I think my favorite line from “Brat” is probably “But you know I’ll never be the girl that was before. I’m a star surrounded by these dinosaurs“. She really is surrounded by so many dinosaurs in the current music industry and has got this far totally independently and without any help from those dinosaurs. Go, Delilah! If I could, I would vote Delilah, how about you?
