Toronto native Erich Mrak has been on quite the creative role, releasing a single each month this year through June in a planned six-song rollout. His latest, "Fake It," is a pop tune that straddles the line between electronic and hip hop and showcases excellent production from Bento. The song opens with a jittery keyboard over sparse piano before the song fully kicks in, with lush keyboards, drenched in reverb over a more traditional hip hop beat. Mrak's monotone vocal delivery works here, given the subject matter of a person afraid to show his true feelings of a relationship gone bad. It's something many people have been through and Mrak conveys those feelings well in this strong offering that builds anticipation for his next three singles.
