Erich Mrak Releases New Song “Girls”
- Toronto-based pop/hip hop singer-songwriter Erich Mrak has unveiled a new song “Girls” from his upcoming debut album “Glimpse”.
He recorded the song at Revolution Recording in Toronto. Originally, the song title was “Boys”.
Erich Mrak explained the story behind the song, “'Girls' was one of the last songs we produced for “Glimpse”, and the initial production of the song started with myself, and Phil playing melodies on an upright piano on the live floor. Initially “Girls” was titled “Boys” and centered around the dynamic of a close female friend of mine going through heartbreak. While the context of '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.”
He continued, “'Girls' was influenced by artists like Post Malone, Tame Impala and The 1975, with it's guitar heavy production, processed vocals and lyrics derived from interpersonal relations. 'Girls' was recorded at Revolution Recording, Toronto. Initial production, and writing for “the track began in July, 2019 during a heatwave midway through a three day session. It 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 album is expected to be released this year.
