About This Track
“Can’t Pretend” is a departure into a more downtempo electronic realm. The slow builds and atmosphere of the track play into the lyrical themes of self-discovery. It’s about letting go of a past relationship and finding myself in the process.
The song was written and produced by Mark Berg and mastered by Luke Pretty of Tennyson.
Tropic Harbour Bio
You’re invited to Tropic Harbour, a utopian space constructed by Mark Berg for peace of mind. This headspace has become the moniker for Berg’s hazy dream pop creations contrived from nostalgic images and dreams of the coast. A musical outlet created out of necessity for Berg to mentally escape his wintery home city of Edmonton.
Tropic Harbour became fully realized after the live side of the project was formed, playing an array of festivals (i.e Pop Montreal, NXNE, Sled Island) and opening for such bands as DIIV, Jessy Lanza, Homeshake and Will Butler
