BØRNS to release debut EP ‘Candy’ Nov.10 on Interscope Records

By on October 30, 2014


BØRNS will release his debut EP Candy November 10th on Interscope Records.  The set comes on the heels of his debut single “10,000 Emerald Pools” which was released earlier this month to heaps of praise.  Neon Gold called the track “a debut single that’s love at first listen and then some…“10,000 Emerald Pools”…soaks up the cosmic rays of a thousand suns and channels [them] into a solar-powered summer anthem for any season.”   CMJ stated “the song is a slinky little synth-pop number, alight with vocal hooks and chipper acoustic guitars,” Pigeons & Planes called it “an expansive, fluid piece of music that comfortably combines elements of rock, folk, electronic and pop” and Hilly Dilly declared it “a genre-mashing work that simply hits all the right notes.”


Candy was recorded in Los Angeles at Kennedy Space Station & Studio America and produced by Kennedy and Tommy English.  Complete track listing for Candy is: “Electric Love,” “10,000 Emerald Pools,” “Past Lives” and “Seeing Stars.”  Listen to first single “10,000 Emerald Pools” HERE.


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 all the songs that appear on his debut EP Candy.


BØRNS just finished up a successful stint at CMJ in New York with both Entertainment Weekly and i-D Magazine naming him one of the best new acts at the festival. He will bring his angelic voice across the U.S. this fall.  Some upcoming West Coast dates are below:


10/30               Stockton, CA              University of the Pacific (w/ Grizfolk)

11/20               San Francisco, CA     Popscene (w/Mr. Little Jeans)

12/8                 Los Angeles, CA         Bardot for “It’s a School Night”
