EDITORS’ NOTES

It’s no surprise that Michigan’s BØRNS moved to L.A. before recording Dopamine—it's pure Southern California in a bottle. In the studio, Garrett Borns' sunkissed falsetto and intricately penned confessionals are given a glitzy bump. “Electric Love” explodes with a crunchy T. Rex-style riff before it takes a turn for sweet, breathy indie pop. On “The Emotion”, BØRNS channels Jeff Buckley and Bjôrk in equal measure over a shimmering wash of guitars. But what threads these lilting gems and electro-pop heaters together is that most narcotising of emotions—love is the drug he's thinking of.

Psychedelic

BØRNS’ debut LP ‘Dopamine’ is a psychedelic whirlwind - heavily crafted in elements of 60’s soft rock and modern day chamber pop. BØRNS’ voice is alluring; spangled among the ultimate electric acid trip. The debut narrates a spiritual and sexual awakening - perfect for a coming of age indie flick or rhapsodic, gush-worthy novice experience.

Love BORNS!

I’m so excited for Dopamine!! I loved Candy - EP so much and I’m super excited to hear his new songs! I saw him at Lollapalooza and it was an amazing!!!
One thing however, where is Past Lives and Seeing Stars on this??
They’re two of my most favorites by BORNS and bummed to not see them! ***Deluxe Version possibly??**

Therapeutic

Wow…From his soothing vocal cords, to the psychedelic pop he synchronizes with the pitch of his voice, BØRNS has released absolute fire. I’ve already pre-ordered Dopamine, and expect the rest of his songs to carry the album to being one of the best albums I will ever purchase. If you haven’t already, listen to the acoustic version of 10,000 Emeralds. Expect BØRNS’ music to be the background to a variety of advertisements, as his tune will drag your attention.
