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.
