FLESH MECHANIC Absolutely smitten with this release. Sometimes you stumble upon an album that perfectly captures your mood and feelings, and Where We Live is exactly that for me. This strange symbiosis of bittersweet tones and a beautiful voice hits me with sort of a peaceful kind of melancholia, it's like knowing someone else feels the everyday shades of grey of this life and reminds you that nice things aren't lost in them. Do yourself a favor and give this a listen. Favorite track: Is This Reality.

J. Robot The work of Born Days hits me like a ton of bricks. The achingly angelic vocals, the minimal Twin Peaks-with-a-beat pulsing music ... it's vibey as hell, and your ears need it. Favorite track: Glitch.

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

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

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?

Glitch 04:45
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

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?

Watch the video for "Where We Live"
vimeo.com/350502284

"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 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 am working on new music. <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.
