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 both upbeat and dark. 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.
After Harris’ debut self-produced EP Be True was released in 2017 it garnered praise from sources such as DIY Magazine, Bandcamp, Impose Magazine, The Deli, Destroy and Exist, Surviving the Golden Age, and the Chicago Tribune and earned her comparisons to the likes of Princess Chelsea, EMA and Massive Attack.
She would spend the next two years playing live sets around the Midwest with local, national, and international artists. During this time Harris also began working on organizing her own record label (Rain Heart Records) and producing the new music that is the Where We Live EP.
