To celebrate the upcoming spooky season, brat-punk hip hopper DELILAH BON has released her new single and lyric video for ‘WITCH’, which features a guest appearance from duo ALT BLK ERA, available for streaming now. ‘WITCH’ is a war cry for women everywhere, past and present, lyrically addressing the thousands of innocent women killed during the 14th-17th century witch trials fuelled by religious fear-mongering and misogyny.

On the new single, DELILAH BON comments:
“I wrote this song for the forgotten women in history who were killed on suspicion of witchcraft during the 14th – 17th century witch trials. If women were outspoken, if they challenged the church or the patriarchy, they would be forced to confess to being a witch under torture and then hanged or burnt at the stake. All of it was fuelled by misogyny and the fear of women’s power. They wanted to silence and blame women, killing over 50,000 of them across Europe and America. I did a lot of reading about witches and couldn’t believe how barbaric and wide scale it all was, it only felt right to give these women a voice 300 years later.”

ALT BLK ERA, who features on the track, is a genre-bending duo that consists of Nyrobi and Chaya, who unapologetically merge the musical boundaries of rock by incorporating the influences of rap, DnB, electronica, and operatic sounds. The sisters understand what it’s like to live on the edge of social norms and through their music, are on a mission to create diverse, safe spaces for adults and their allies.

DELILAH BON effortlessly blends mischievous lyrical hip-hop, hard hitting nu-metal and bratty riot grrrl punk into a style she calls ‘Brat Punk’. Empowering women, non binary and LGBTQ+ people worldwide through her fierce lyrics and feminine rage. DELILAH‘s music doesn’t shy away from serious topics, but she also brings a mischievous element to the music, building soundscapes and characters, unafraid to let her creativity flow between genres to get her message over.

2023 has been an action-packed year for DELILAH BON. In the summer of ’23 she was nominated for Heavy Music Award’s ‘Best UK Breakthrough Artist’ and appeared at a number of UK and French festivals including the Glastonbury LeftField stage and 2000 Trees festival. She has also appeared on the legendary French music show ‘Taratata Live’ and completed her first European tour in September, including a sell-out show in Paris at Les Estoiles. 

DELILAH BON has been supported through Spotify’s UK Radar and secured several editorial playlists on her single release ‘BRAT’, including cover artist of Misfits 2.0. She also has airplay from Kerrang Radio, and BBC Radio One Introducing Rock show.

DELILAH BON is an independent artist who writes, performs, and produces all her own music, releasing on her own label Trash Queen Records. She is currently on tour supporting US artist Scene Queen and will complete the year supporting French band Shaka Ponk for two sell-out nights at the Zenith Stadium Paris.
