Pain, in all its forms, is inevitable. Even in our most blissful moments, this unfortunate rule of the natural world lurks around the corner. It waits confidently as the passage of time eventually leads you to its open jaw. However, even from within its tightest clench, one can always find comfort in the knowledge that feelings are temporal. This too shall pass.
Delilah Belle Hamlin shares her own experiences with this emotional phenomenon in her new single Nothing Lasts Forever: an ethereal pop song about the painful redundancy of life. As her debut musical venture, it serves as an introduction to her point of view and style as an artist.
In the song’s accompanying video, Hamlin tosses and turns in a stripped down bedroom–an isolating yet intimate setting to pour her heart out into. Over the song’s graceful melody, Hamlin visualizes the purity of new beginnings as white and silver fabric bends and molds to her body, changing shape with each movement. She sings the lyrics like reading out a diary entry, recounting a moment of physical and mental struggle as she calls out for a savior.
Though this is the first time we are hearing her music, Hamlin is no stranger to the spotlight. The 24-year-old model-turned-musician is the daughter of entertainment royalty Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin, appearing frequently on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and on fashion show runways. Hamlin notes her roots in the public eye and how they have led her to this musical moment. “I’ve learned that music and writing are really my creative outlets,” she told FLAUNT in issue 184, The Tempest Issue, “and they’re ways for me to open up about my struggles, and hopefully share with people through music.”
Hamlin is currently working on her debut full-length album.
