Sometimes you get tired of your hyper-obscure, SoundCloud-rapper go-tos. Sometimes, all you need is a pop soundtrack to vibe to. Garrett Borns, who performs under the name BØRNS, gives you just that with his latest release, Blue Madonna.
The album is the epitome of easy-listening — showcasing electronic grooves, inconsequential lyrics and a falsetto that would make even Bon Iver proud. All together, these elements produce a dreamy, almost nostalgic soundscape. Check out the song “God Save Our Young Blood,” where BØRNS enlists help from the gloom-pop princess herself, Lana Del Rey.
