"Jen's Clock" is Becoming Real's darkest song yet. A brief respite from his other, more fractured work. It's mainly built on the constant, ominous swell of bass and small, sharp submarine pings—but, as with the rest of his work, there's much more to be discovered. Even the video lends a kind of snuff film vibe to the whole thing. Not actually though, don't worry. ANYWAY! All three songs in the Soundcloud thingy below travel that same path AS "Jen's Clock": a nervous undercurrent perpetually thrumming underneath. All three of these songs are jams, and lucky for all of us the 12-inch will be released on June 21st on RAMP. In the meantime, enjoy the video up above and the songs down below.
