It’s quickly becoming apparent that 2018 is the Year of the Mallrat with today’s release of her truly epic, new single “UFO (feat Allday),” while is part of a brand new EP to follow soon.
In stark contrast to the shimmering, acoustic guitar driven sheen of “Better,” (the last release that came from Mallrat at the tail end of 2017) “UFO” falls into a much darker and brooding territory. Its dense production and layers of hypnotic melodies highlight her vast development as a composer and producer since the release of 2016’s debut EP, Uninvited.
Mallrat’s career has skyrocketed since her humble beginnings as a tween rapper in the suburbs of Brisbane. She now counts a huge following of fans, from her current base in Melbourne through to gigantic international locations like Mexico City. Her refreshingly honest observations of day-to-day life, her relatable and confessional lyrics, and her penchant for writing sticky melodies that you just can’t shake have all shaped her into the kind of artist that is perfectly positioned to be Australia’s next big name in pop music.
In March, she will head to SXSW in Austin, Texas for her US debut, followed by a handful of headline shows LA, San Francisco and Brookyln.
