Mrenc (pronounced Mister E-N-C) is Eric N Collins
After two split releases with fellow New Granada artists, Sunbears! and King of Spain, ViaEnc’s Mrenc delivers his proper solo debut,
All Around Surround on Florida’s New Granada Records.
STREET DATE: Tuesday September 10, 2013
The 8-track vinyl ‘mini-LP’ (6-track CDEP/digital) is dripping with influences from his life in his native Sunshine State, from sunburnt beaches to muggy moonlit streets of the inland. Dark, pounding drums; jangling guitars and Collins’s signature croon make .wavs for you to ride all the way onto the shore. With it’s minimalistic lyrics forming chants of love, fear, and the occasional biting satire, All Around Surround breaks with range from haunting and lonely to a full eruption of sonic joy. Danceable, dark, sunny, reflective? All of the above.
Mrenc hopes to bring celebration to the listeners ears and soul…not by a worldly hoodoo, but by Spirit.
All Around Surround was written, performed, produced and recorded from his home in “Orlampa”, FL
(ie. Lakeland; nestled perfectly between Orlando and Tampa).
