Ottawa/Toronto-based hip-hop artist Erich Mrak released his latest collection V EP back in January of this year. Even after facing obstacles which forced back the release of V, Mrak was back to studio to work on his upcoming effort Hideaway.
From the forthcoming record, “Drowning Out” shows a more pensive, fragile side of Mrak. The song circulates around the tragic consequences of drinking and driving, touching on personal experiences. Bringing back Ottawa musician Maurice Moore (who was featured on “For You”), the new single captures the slow-burning, fuel of alt-R&B with Mrak’s indie hip-hop style layered overtop.
