Mallrat, the 19-year-old Australian pop-rap sensation, is debuting a new track “Better” – her first new music since her Uninvited EP last year.
Featuring both its title track and the generational anthem “For Real,” Mallrat’s Uninvited EP introduced her to the world, instantly grabbing fans with her magnetic musings on everyday life in all its glorious mundanity, told through a next-gen pop kaleidoscope, touching the hearts and minds of many across the globe. With multiple tracks shooting straight to the top of the Hype Machine charts, Mallrat quickly got heat from tastemakers like Stereogum and Noisey, and the EP has racked in over 11 million Spotify streams to date.
Having just signed to Nettwerk, Mallrat has also toured with Maggie Rogers, played sold-out headlining shows and made festival appearances to massive audiences in Australia. Gorillaz’ Noodle also just included her EP title track “Uninvited” in a playlist of Kick-Ass Women.
New single “Better” is the enthralling next chapter for Mallrat. Once again, we’re offered a sugar-coated, blissfully melancholic commentary on the commonplace life of a 19-year-old, fresh out of school. Expertly written by Mallrat herself and co-produced by Konstantin Kersting and Andrew Dawson (Kanye West), “Better” is another undeniable gem from the Brisbane-based artist, reminding us just what an exciting and rare talent she is.
Speaking of the track, Mallrat noted – “I wrote Better over a year ago, but it’s taken most of this time to get it sounding exactly how it does in my head, so thanks for waiting so patiently for new music. My dad says it’s his favorite song which makes me very excited to share it with everyone.”
