Video Premiere: Becoming Real – Bleach
When someone is making music that steps well outside of the average Joe's comfort zone then our ears immediately prick up and we stand firmly to attention, ready waiting to receive the latest batch of aural strangeness that heads our way. Becoming Real is one such music maker who has as firm a grip on the surreal as you're liekly to come across.
