“There’s a lot of artists working right now in the shredded space between rap and noise, but their take is a little different.” Noisey
“There aren’t many bands that blur the lines between punk and grime as effectively as
London duo Bob Vylan. Outspoken and engrossing in equal measures, their lyrics
convey the angst and discrimination at the hand of a corrupt system while sonically
it’s like “being pelted by a downpour of razor sharp arrows.” NME
2019 saw Bobby (vocals and production) and Bobb13 (drums and spiritual
guidance) generate significant hype with guest appearances on Frank Carter and
The Rattlesnakes Radio 1 session for Annie Mac, supporting Gallows at their
triumphant comeback show at House of Vans and collaborating with Massive
Attack alumni Tricky on his new album.
A North American tour with hardcore rapper Nascar Aloe and inclusion in the NME
100 Essential New Artists for 2020 list has kicked this year off in menacing style.
Right now, singer Bobby is adorning billboards and posters worldwide as part of Doc
Martens ‘Tough As You’ campaign cementing the North London duo as a global
spectacle. It’s time to accept the fact that Bob Vylan are here, angry, loud, vital and
it’s already too late to stop them.
