I like it when a song really stops you in your tracks and hits you in the face with something good, but sometimes the subtle slow-burners can be just as effective and this is true of today’s song.
Upcoming singer-songwriter Melissa Harris, aka Born Days, creates dark electronic pop music that is rooted in her experiences with daydreaming, darkness and a fascination with retro synths and samples. Based in Chicago, Illinois Melissa Harris released her first EP, What I Don’t See, in January this year and is due to release its follow-up at the end of this month.
New single Be True gorgeously captures the hauntingly dreamy musings of Born Days, blending ethereal vocals with gentle cascading synths and a minimalist beat. This isn’t a sound that leaps into your head, but rather laps at your ears like a gathering tide and is a subtle force to be reckoned with. Listen above.
