Toronto’s Erich Mrak has no intention of settling down in one genre. The artist — who has been writing lyrics since the age of 7 — is back with a chill pop tune that takes inspiration from artists like Tame Impala and The 1975.
“Girls” is about finding that person who has your back when you’re down. Not the romantic relationship, but the friend who steers you away from the romance that will do you harm and builds you up when the inevitable heartbreak sets in. Sure, there’s a heavy dose of romantic-style woes here, but at the end of the day this track has optimism.
The chill of the melody backs this sense of comfort up while processed vocals fall softly over the instrumentation. There is a sincere chill in the rustling percussion and plunking piano. When the guitar comes in with a truly groovy melody, the track is lifted into new territory.
“Girls” comes off the upcoming full-length album Glimpse. To hear more from Erich Mrak as we await that drop, you can find him on his website, SoundCloud, and Facebook page. You can also follow the artist on Twitter for more music and news.[upme view=compact id=10]
