about

"Harris’s sense of pop songcraft is immaculate; she knows how to use her voice, delicate but with a core of crystalline strength, to reach for melodies that are simultaneously angelic and plangent. No synth element is out of place, and her production is clear and sharp. And she never forgets that even the most minimalist dark music should have a core of romanticism."
-Bandcamp

"Drenched in reverb and driven by hypnotic breakbeat loops, expertly crafted drum samples, and dreamy synths; Born Days' dystopian and cosmic tracks mix nostalgia with anticipation."
-High Clouds

“Chicago-based producer brings the same haunting tones as Massive Attack to her latest trip-hop-inspired release.”
-Mystic Sons

released October 4, 2019

"Where We Live" was recorded in my DIY one bedroom studio from the winter of 2018 to the summer of 2019. I tried my best to make each song its own little world and to make sure that you can't hear the Chicago L train outside my window or the sound of my radiators kicking on in the winter. I hope you enjoy this EP and thank you for following me here. I will be working on new music in 2020. <3

Written, arranged, produced and performed by Born Days / Melissa Harris.

Recorded by Melissa Harris in Chicago, IL.

Mixed and Mastered by Melissa Harris + Brian Cook.

Album art + design by Melissa Harris, photography by Samie Deyo, logo design by Tedd Anderson.

Special thanks to Brian Cook, Joseph Doornbos, Samie Deyo, Rachel Winslow, Tedd Anderson, and my sweet Charlie B and Bells.

Track Name: Where We Live
In the world that we live
You have said that I care too much
Every time that we fight
Let it go and see the light
Baby

In the world that we live
We have seen things that are bad
And we want to change
Want to fight
Want to fight
But they fight back
Can't stop me
Track Name: Anywhere
You and I we never really fight
I can tell u anything and that’s alright
I don’t need to be anything
U don’t need to be anything for me
Pick me up take me out somewhere nice
Pick me up take me out somewhere nice tonight
We can ride by the light of the moon
We can ride by the light of the moon all night

Tell me that you'll take me anywhere
Tell me that you'll take me anywhere
Anywhere is everywhere I'm here
Anywhere is everywhere I'm here

You and I we never really fight
I can tell u anything and that’s alright
U don’t need to be anything
I don’t need to be anything for u
Pick me up take me out somewhere nice
Pick me up take me out somewhere nice
Tonight, tonight

Tell me that you'll take me anywhere
Tell me that you'll take me anywhere
Anywhere is everywhere I'm here
Anywhere is everywhere I'm here
Track Name: 2084
In the year 1984
We were nothing more
than a spore
In the light we reflect nothing
Empty spaces in the dark
Retreat

And they never knew what
we would become
Is it physics or love?

Love, is it love?
Love, is it love?
Love, is it love?
Love, is it love?

In the year 2084
We are gone now
but now we are one
In the light we were nothing more
Than a cell mutated to destroy

Love, is it love?
Love, is it love?
Love, is it love?
Love, is it love?
Track Name: Glitch
Everybody flows away from me
Eternally
on repeat 

My thoughts must be a glitch inside of me 
on repeat 
Eternally

A glitch…
We found a glitch…

No one really knows me
But you baby
i’m on my own 
Eternally 

My heart must be a glitch inside of me
We build a wall 
Eternally

A glitch…
We found a glitch…

on my own 
eternally 
on repeat 
a glitch 
Track Name: Is This Reality
Are we in reality
Who controls the world
How can we escape this
Who controls the simulation

Are we real?
Is this world real?

Are we in reality
Who controls the future
How can we escape this
Who controls the simulation

Are we real?
Is this world real?

Do I control the simulation?
Do I control the simulation?
Do I control the simulation?
Do I control the simulation?

Do I?
