Hot Track of the Week: “10,000 Emerald Pools”

Fresh on the music scene is BØRNS, an artist that you cannot miss!  Garrett Borns, known by his stage name BØRNS recently moved from his hometown in Michigan to California in pursuit of his music career.  Learning the piano at the age of six, Borns has continued on to the ukulele, guitar, drums, vibraphone and accordion.  This guy offers a multi-talented approach to indie-pop in a whole new way. He just dropped his first single “10,000 Emerald Pools” and, for me, it was love at first listen. BØRNS gives off a great indie-pop vibe, without the overwhelming synths, or winy voices that often categorize the genre these days.  This catchy tune relies on a simple baseline, chipper acoustic guitar and the vibrant falsetto of Garrett Borns, who to be honest, I mistook for a female vocalist at first.  This upbeat, catchy tune is a summer anthem for any season -- you know, the kind of song that makes you want to drive with the windows down, smile plastered across your face?  And even though fall is in full swing here at Bucknell, “10,000 Emerald Pools” is sure to put you in that feel-good “summer mood.”
