Beginning as a bedroom project in her native Brisbane, Mallrat has evolved from cult favourite to beloved star. Channeling fears, hopes and obsessions into lyrics, her songs have become anthems for young people. With combined streams topping 300 million, she has become a beacon the Australian music industry will eagerly follow. Her trio of early EPs — ‘Uninvited’ (2016), ‘In The Sky’ (2018), ‘Driving Music’ (2019) — are documents of an artist fast on the rise. In the process of making them, Shaw swapped the Brisbane suburbs for Los Angeles, and toured both at home and internationally, including European and North American supports for Maggie Rogers and King Princess, selling out headline shows from Sydney to London and New York, and collecting fans in the likes of Mark Ronson on the way.
New single ‘Your Love’ follows the indie-rock infused ‘Rockstar,’ which saw Mallrat find new power in her vocal range. Aspirational, boastful, humble and heartbreaking all at once, the track landed a #13 place in triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2020, while ‘Your Love’ has already won acclaim from Pitchfork, Billboard, Rolling Stone and NME, among others.
