Mallrat


Mallrat (aka Grace Shaw) recently released her latest EP Driving Music, a 6-song collection that established her as one of the most powerful voices of her generation. Mallrat’s arrival has been nothing short of extraordinary. From the sleepy town of Brisbane, Australia, Mallrat finds beauty in the mundane. With refreshingly honest observations of day-to-day life layered over subtly beguiling melodies, there’s a slow-burning restlessness in her sound that is impossible to ignore. The 20-year old Australian artist has a penchant for writing sticky melodies that you just can’t shake. Her songs nestle comfortably between pop and indie hip hop and have garnered attention from the likes of NY Times, Stereogum, NYLON and more, including NPR – who said that the only downside to listening to her track, "Better" is that "your heart may actually explode with happiness." PAPER Magazine recently named her in their "100 Women Revolutionizing Pop". After making it onto “Best of” lists by The FADER, Billboard, NOISEY, and Triple J, Teen Vogue deemed her one of "16 Young Musicians You Need to Be Listening to." Mallrat’s profile continues to build with the latest track “Charlie.” At home, the track placed at #3 on Triple J Hottest 100, just behind Billie Eilish and Flume. In the states, she made her late-night TV performance debut on the Late Late Show With James Corden, while in the UK, winning “Best Australian Solo Act” at this year’s NME Awards. In the past year, she has toured alongside Maggie Rogers, gnash, and Post Malone and recently headlined a sold-out tour across Australia and the US. She has also found a fan in Mark Ronson after the two struck up an unlikely friendship when Shaw claimed that Ronson was Marshmello.
