Erich Mrak

Girls (digital single)

Review by Gary Hill

Here is proof that you can create modern pop songs, with all the usual trappings, and make them work. This is the latest single from Erich Mrak, an artist I've reviewed quite a few times previously. It's another effective piece in a series of effective songs.

This review is available in book (paperback and hardcover) in Music Street Journal: 2020  Volume 4. More information and purchase links can be found at:

Track by Track Review
An old-school musical texture opens this cut. It has a bit of a jazzy sort of vibe. I dig the rhythmic elements to it, too. The vocals are seriously processed. I normally dislike that effect, but somehow it really works for this song. I guess it just goes to show that when you do it on the right song, it can be effective. There are multiple layers of vocals, and the musical arrangement shifts and changes. I love the retro funk vibe that a lot of this cut has.
