Mallrat Announces World Tour For 2022; Debut Album ‘Butterfly Blue’ Out Now Via Nettwerk 

May 20, 2022 BY Penny Palmer

Today, multi-faceted artist and producer Mallrat announces her 2022 World Tour to take her brand new, critically acclaimed debut record, Butterfly Blue on the road, with headline shows and festivals across Europe, the UK, North America and Australia. The highly anticipated album was released on May 13th to praise from NPRTeen VogueNMEPAPERMTV and more, and marks a triumphant debut fromMallrat, solidifying her reputation as a master of clever, timeless pop.

Hot off the heels of an opening stint for Conan Gray in the UK and Europe, the new tour will see Mallrat playing new tracks from the album such as “To You,” which comes fresh off the back of the year’s most unexpected collaboration, “Surprise Me (feat. Azealia Banks),” and its much loved predecessors “Your Love,” “Teeth” and “Rockstar.”

Sweeping across vast, airy production, Butterfly Blue is often surprising, with samples and sounds tucked under the surface: chopped-up Gangsta Pat bars, a flipped recording of a children’s choir performing Lisztomania, and more. Distorted effects were recorded from discarded children’s toys – a sonic gift from producer Clams Casino. Layered like an instrument all their own, her signature breathy vocals are more assured than ever.

About “Surprise Me (feat. Azealia Banks)”

“The song is an infinite loop of bubblegum-trap bliss. Sometimes you just have to steal some joy wherever you can find it…thank you for this” – Pitchfork

“…feels like an instant classic, possessing as much charisma and renegade wit as any of Banks’ hits”– PAPER

“Bright synths and hi-hats pay homage to the minimalist Soundcloud rap that influences Mallrat’s hyper-online, infectious pop. Banks is wickedly funny with her sex-filled rap that is as jarring as it is addictive”– PASTE

About “Teeth”

“Mallrat has an untouchable air of cool, and her new track “Teeth” is one of her most fully realized sonic experiments yet…It’s a step into an exciting new arena for Mallrat, and she sounds right at home”​​– Consequence

“‘Teeth’ is a slow-building marvel —It’s just another surprising move pulled from Mallrat’s deep bag of tricks”– PAPER

“Equal parts gloomy and vibrant, the track pleasingly demonstrates we might not know what to expect from a Mallrat album” – CoolHunting

“Before the release of her debut album, Mallrat gave fans a taste of what to expect” – E! Online

About “Your Love”

“Mallrat’s ability to pair the sonic template with slick melodies, and the titular phrase repeated into a hypnotic refrain, produces an encouraging start to the indie artist’s next era” – Billboard

“expansive yet airy pop cut” – MTV

“a pink shellac summertime” – NYLON

“a total slammer..a pop track that’s defiant and gorgeously rendered” – PAPER

“It’s a song with endless surprises, perhaps the biggest of all being Mallrat’s consistent innovation and risk-taking” – PASTE

“perfect pop anthem” – Ones To Watch

“a spaced-out pop song built on a hypnotic dance beat” – Stereogum

“Mallrat enters her new era with this Memphis-rap-via-Brisbane banger” – RIOT

“Mallrat never fails to subvert expectations and “Your Love” is no exception”​-​ Washington Square News (NYU)

About “Rockstar”

“sounds like the sweetest daydream you’ve ever had” – NYLON

“gleaming 2020s pop” – The FADER

“There’s an organic, encompassing warmth to Mallrat’s music; her songs are pop polished, but nearly always break through to complex, unvarnished emotion. “Rockstar” is an addictive, breathtaking kiss-off” – PAPER

“best single of her career” – Idolator

“Taking cues from the signature sounds of Lana Del Rey and Kacey Musgraves, Mallrat leads listeners into a dreamy world in which she imagines a whole new life for herself” – Refinery29

“dreamy and mesmerizing” – COLLiDE

“Rockstar” is another great example of Mallrat’s growth as an artist and a great showcase of her lyrical chops. “Rockstar” is the perfect starting point for anyone new to the Mallrat phenomenon” – Indie Shuffle
