Born Days – ‘Is This Reality’

About Born Days

Born Days is Chicago based singer, songwriter, and producer Melissa Harris known for making her own brand of darkwave dystopian pop that evokes all things dreamy and apocalyptic. Harris has spent the last few years learning how to produce, record, and mix her electronic based music in her DIY recording space she built in her one bedroom apartment.

Harris uses reverb-drenched vocals, computer glitch inspired synthesizers, and a variety of sampled drums and drum machines to produce lush hazy soundscapes that are upbeat yet dark and dreamy. Born Days’ music is heavily inspired by the synthesizers modeled in the late 70s and early 80s, drums sampled from early 90s house and hiphop, and the iconic sound of the Rhodes Wurlitzer and the Hammond organ.

Harris writes songs about destruction and beauty and she is not afraid to be completely vulnerable in that she makes music that might not appeal to everyone. She is inspired by the end of the world, death, humanity, sadness, light, cruelty, and innocence. She writes songs that are meant to see you through your darkest moments and bring you back out into the light – even when finding the light sometimes means realizing and coming to terms with the idea that everything is actually still nothing.
