Well polished power pop from BØRNS.
Growing up in coastal Michigan, Garrett Borns has been moving from one inspiration to another. His first artistic love was visual arts and then came music thanks to an eccentric piano teacher. At the age of 15 BØRNS attended the prestigious summer program at Interlochen Center for the Arts to study filmmaking while writing songs on the side with the music majors. Playing local gigs through high school and college, BØRNS ended up in a secluded treehouse home in the Los Angeles canyons. Feeling a rebirth of inspiration he wrote “10,000 Emerald Pools,” a song that most perfectly captures the singer’s signature emotive, youth-and-abandon fueled sensibility. “When you feel an emotion so visceral and potent, the songs write themselves,” he says. “I didn’t consciously write it, it came from the feeling of longing and the world slowing down when you dive deep into love.” BØRNS is working on his debut EP which will be released on Interscope Records later this year.
