The songs of Michigan native’s, Garret Borns, EP Candy, are finally picking up speed. Candy was released in November 2014, but the song “Electric Love” is taking the reigns. With over 16 million plays on Spotify, it’s only continuing to get more popular. With its recent release of a music video, this song features a mystical foggy forest alongside BØRNS alternative melody. “Electric Love” is certainly sweet like candy as BØRNS’ voice and instruments combine the sounds of rock, indie, and electro. The beats and lyrics reflect each other perfectly as they intoxicate you with happy vibes and make you feel as if you’re floating underwater. As BØRNS’ voice transcends over the thick bass and electric pop, he eliminates any gender bias. In fact, when I first listened to it, I heard a female voice similar to Florence Welch.
This song is anything, but sappy. With lyrics like “Baby, you’re like lightening in a bottle / I can’t let you go now that I got it,” BØRNS is straying away from the cliché love songs you hear everyday. BØRNS is definitely on the rise with this track and will be making an appearance at Lollapalooza as well as accompanying Charli XCX on tour this summer. “Electric Love” definitely is worth a listen, and it won’t be long before it’s bumping through your radio.
