Bob Vylan have teamed up with Laurie Vincent of Slaves for a new single, ‘The Delicate Nature’.
The new track follows the London-based punk rockers’ recent third album, ‘Bob Vylan Presents The Price Of Life’, which Dork’s 4-star review described as, “a vibrant mix of influences, unafraid to mix wholesome community with anger and frustration at the world around it”.
“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,” vocalist Bobby Vylan has shared. “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,” he adds. “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.”
Laurie Vincent has also offered his thoughts: “’The Delicate Nature’ flew into being. Bob and I struck up such an instinctive workflow that it was like writing and creating with someone I’d known for years. This song is on a whole other level. It channels all the immediacy and fury we’ve come to associate with Bob‘s music while accessing something new. Sometimes melodic, sometimes catchy but never compromising.”
