WHAT THE PRESS HAS BEEN SAYING…

About “Surprise Me (feat. Azealia Banks)”

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

– PAPER

“gleaming 2020s pop” – The FADER

“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
