This is one of those songs that starts pretty well, then gets good but, soon after that, gets even better. Mallrat has released her new EP, In The Sky, which includes ‘UFO’ (ft. Allday) and the magnificent new single 'Groceries'.
In The Sky is the second EP to come from the Australia based popstar. Her debut release ‘Uninvited’, released back in 2016 saw her plant her flag firmly in the sand, and kick-started her skyrocketing ascent from her humble beginnings as a tween rapper in the Brisbane suburbs. Her refreshingly honest observations of day-to-day life and the awkwardness of being a teenager, and sticky melodies on tracks like ‘For Real’, ‘Uninvited’ and 2017’s single ‘Better’ have captured the hearts and minds of an ever-growing fan base, with demand for her growing across the globe.
Last month Mallrat made a triumphant return with ‘UFO’ (ft Allday), the first to come from her the brand new EP – expected this month. In stark contrast to the shimmering, acoustic guitar driven sheen of ‘Better’, it finds Mallrat exploring a much darker and brooding territory. The five track EP sees her continue to uncover new ground and explore her wholly unique sound. EP opener, ‘Groceries’, is her biggest and boldest track so far with her most unknowingly catchy melody to date. Across all the tracks on In The Sky, Mallrat has stepped up her game while still being playfully intelligent with her lyrics and themes. It’s the sign of a young popstar who is growing up and into once of the most exciting new talents around.
