“So take me to the paradise / in your eyes / green like American money / You taste just right / sweet like Tennessee honey”
Garrett Borns is a 24 year old that hails from Grand Haven, Michigan. Garrett studied at the Interlochen Center for the Arts and has spent considerable time in the Great Lakes area, New York City, and now resides in Los Angeles. Garrett goes by his stage name, BØRNS, and debuted his first EP, A Dream Between, in 2012. BØRNS released his first full length album, Dopamine, with Interscope Records on October 2015.
BØRNS sounds like a blend of Lana Del Ray, Banks, Cults, and Bad Suns. His catchy refrains and moving lyrics will have you listening to many of his tracks on repeat. American Money invokes a sense of melancholy while simultaneously energizing the listener. New Alt Sounds highly recommends giving American Money a listen as well as other great tracks, including: “10,000 Emerald Pools” and “Electric Love”. BØRNS and artists like him embody where the alternative music scene is now as well as where it is going for years ahead.
