As part of his musical collection releasing one single month over month from January to June, his EP will be made up of those released tracks. When listening to the lyrics within the song, its quite clear that Mrak channels the feelings that he experiences throughout the song with lyrics such as “I’m close to the edge, when healing myself doesn’t make sense”. Listeners will hear that the song waves in and out of upbeat and slow tempos all rolled into one. When trying to figure out musicians in the industry that have a similar sound include the names of Spooky Black, old school Smashing Pumpkins, and 90s electronica. His unique sound, unconventional lyrics, and a mix of hip-hop ebbing and flowing throughout the song keep newcomers to his synth vibe in tune, in check, and wanting more.

Erich Mrak Romanticizes Heartbreak In Float

24 Oct

When listeners listen to Float, they will think that they have been transported to a dream land filled with melancholy and an aura of upbeatness as well within the composition of the song. With lyrics stating “with the money you saved, I’m not building you a boat”, one can infer that Erich Mrak is talking about a relationship turned sour. In terms of sound, it’s a cross between Broken Social Scene, Phantogram, and 90s surf rock. Most songs that reflect on relationships and their transformations from beginning to end sound depressing, but Erich Mrak has a way of composing this track in a way that makes listeners think of heartbreaks in a romanticized way. Between the combination of the unique upbeat production by Bento, and the simple lyrics that convey a strong point of heartbreak, sinking, and survival, Erich Mrak stands out with his unique sound and lyrics.
