Erich Mrak – Girls @erichmrakmusic
While the context of Erich Mrak’s “Girls” centers around a recent heartbreak, the core message of the song lies in the supportive dynamic friendship plays in encouraging someone they can do better. “Girls” was recorded at Revolution Recording, Toronto. Initial production, and writing for “Girls” began in July, 2019 during a heatwave midway through a three day session. “Girls” was almost left unfinished due to it being too upbeat in contrast to earlier material recorded between 2017 – 2019. The revisions of “Girls” led to a dramatic shift towards a more pop oriented sound on “Glimpse”. The influences behind “Girls” lie somewhere between Post Malone, Tame Impala, and The 1975. With the guitar heavy production, processed vocals, and content derived from interpersonal relations.
Beginning to write lyrics at the age of 7, and recording his first full song at 13, Erich has continued to practice, and refine his sound since an early age. Born in Ottawa, based in Toronto since 2013, Erichʼs influences come from where heʼs been, and where he currently is. Over production that is made up of two main genreʼs, pop, and hip-hop, Erich displays a combination of the two with a genuine delivery, penning songs that are relatable, with message. Recently amassing over 400,000 streams collectively on various singles, and completing his album, “Glimpse”, Erich shows no signs of slowing down. Outside of the album, Erich’s most recent achievements lie in the practice of piano since the start of the quarantine. Erich has been recording live performance covers in his living room, intending to release them between single releases over the next few months.
