Ahead of their winter headline shows, Bob Vylan have dropped a
new single, The Delicate Nature.
Featuring Slaves’ Laurie Vincent, the track follows the incredible, Kerrang! Award-winning album Bob Vylan Presents The Price Of Life from earlier in the year.
“The Delicate Nature came about when me and Laurie were bouncing
ideas back and forth and he sent over a rough draft of the beat and something
just clicked,” explains Bobby Vylan. “This idea of life being a fleeting moment
that can end or change at any moment is something that I have attempted to
dissect so often in my life. Watching people make split second decisions that
impact their lives forever is something I’ve always found incredibly
fascinating. When I look back at my life I realise how some of the decisions I
made could have landed me in places that would have taken away my freedom, my
autonomy or my health but I’m also able to see how some of those same decisions
equipped me with skills that allowed me to better myself, my life and help me
grow as an individual.
“As far as the musicality of the song goes, creating with Laurie
took me out of my comfort zone. His ability to transition between melodic
phrases and growling riffs made me reassess how I write and structure my music.
Just like the subject matter of the song, the music changes, sometimes suddenly
and that’s what I enjoy most about this song, the uncertainty of what turn it
might take next.”
