BECOME is a story of navigating the complexities and tensions that come with inheriting and adopting two very different cultures. It goes beyond the surface of East meets West and dives into what is often uncharted territory. As a piece of work, it exists as a powerful and moving story that widens the scope of Australia’s cultural narrative.
The 11 songs explore resilience and living through adversity, without succumbing to darkness and depression. L-FRESH The LION is fearless, laying himself out in song, revealing a great pride in his family lineage and history that makes this album very personal and remarkably conspicuous. Producer Michael McGlynn brought an uncomplicated musicality that defines it’s clarity.
From the upbeat first single, ‘Get Mine feat. Parvyn’, to the biting humour of ‘Hold Up feat. REMI’, or the call-to-battle adrenalin rush of ‘Takeover’, to the solemn moments you take with ’unBecome’, this album is truly arresting from beginning to end.
‘Become’ will be released on May 13th through Elefant Traks / Inertia
