BØRNS - Garrett Borns is a rising star in American pop music. His debut album Dopamine, released in 2015 on the Interscope label, where Eminem and Marilyn Manson are registered, was praised by Prince and Taylor Swift, and Borns, who came to conquer Los Angeles from Michigan, hit the top ten from the first shot. Music critics see him as the successor to the glam rock stars who shocked audiences in the early 1970s with their rock-themed performances, dazzling outfits, and androgynous sexuality.
In the last video of Børns, a man dressed in a woman's dress with the habits of Greta Garbo, and a boy with blue hair depicting a big boss, and a strange girl with a dish of grapes, and an ensemble of Mexican guitarists appear, and, finally, the main character is a handsome young man Garrett Clark Borns ... He is dressed in a quirky red and white outfit that looks like a hybrid of tracksuit and Peruvian Indian clothing. She sings in a high, flowing voice and shakes her mane of long curly locks that any girl would envy.
“I grew up listening to the music of the 1970s,” the voice of a twenty-five-year-old musician gently sounds on the telephone. - Listened to all Mark Bolan, David Bowie, Roxy Music. Their music became a solid foundation for my first album. But I listen not only to retro. I have a lot of modern rap in my songs. It plays on Los Angeles radio, but I can't seem to learn to distinguish between the performers. "
Børns' surreal songs, featuring psychedelic, glam rock, electro-pop, and hip-hop traits, always fool assumptions about the ending. They are arranged like pictures-riddles of Maurits Escher - you can see in them both flying birds and swimming fish. And it seems logical when you find out that Borns began his career in show business as an illusionist. “When I was ten, I was at a birthday party where a magician, a gray-haired gentleman who pulled a rabbit out of his hat, was performing,” Garrett recalls. - Other children laughed and applauded, but I suddenly wanted to be in his place. I got hold of books on how to do magic tricks. Classic - card tricks, tricks with shawls and rings. I trained myself, came up with my own show and became a wizard named Garrett the Great."
