Music ~ BØRNS

American indie pop musician, Garrett Borns known as BØRNS captured hearts with an amazing acoustic performance yesterday in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

If you were in the neighbourhood during the afternoon, it was a cool psychedelic atmosphere at Rough Trade NYC.

It was in November 2014 that BØRNS released his debut single 10,000 Emerald Pools with Interscope Records. From there by January 2015, his television appearances began which led to visiting Conan O’Brien and Seth Meyers on their late night shows.

Soon enough, my favourite tune Electric Love (shown above) was playing in most retail boutiques, car commercials and blasting from headphones in international destination cities including New York, London, Paris, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Tokyo. Then last July 2015, he accompanied Charli XCX and Bleachers on their tour to gain exposure.

By August 2015, BØRNS released via social media his album Dopamine. The online presence accumulated a larger following with over 68,000 likes on Facebook, close to 46,000 followers on Twitter and nearly 55,000 Instagram fans.

Following that, he played at Life Is Beautiful festival in Las Vegas September 2015 as well as Austin City Limits in October 2015. Even all through the December holidays and into the New Year, BØRNS was also playing in Topshop creating an enjoyable shopping experience.

Now BØRNS is set to perform this spring at Coachella 2016. Get ready to dance Cali style!
