Fresh from debuting her new single ‘Better,’ being #1 at Alternative radio in Australia, selling out her 18+ Better tour in a matter of days, and playing Live At The Steps for thousands of triple j fans, the queen of nonchalant cool, Mallrat, is hitting the road to bring her sparkling new jam ‘Better’ to life for all ages crowds. With deliciously sweet hooks and a characteristically anthemic chorus, ‘Better’ is sure to invoke some loud sing-alongs at Mallrat shows this summer.

‘Better’ premiered on triple j’s Good Nights with Linda in Australia and internationally on Stereogum, reinforcing the global appeal of the artist touted early as the “Hannah Montana of the rap game” and who has since gone on to rack up over 13 million streams on Spotify alone since releasing her debut Uninvited EP in 2016.

With a huge following of fans from Melbourne to Mexico City, Mallrat’s refreshingly honest observations of day-to-day life, her relatably confessional lyrics, and her penchant for writing sticky melodies that you just can’t shake, have all shaped her into the kind of artist that’s perfectly positioned to be Australia’s next big name in pop music. The shower of acclaim from the likes of the New York Times, as well as NME, Beats 1, Noisey, Pigeons and Planes, Perez Hilton, Rolling Stone, and Pilerats just to name a few, reinforces that even further.

Meanwhile, at home in Australia she’s forging a reputation as one of the most endearing live performers in the country, thanks to spots on festivals like Splendour In The Grass and Listen Out, and support slots with the likes of Allday, Peking Duk, and Maggie Rogers.

She’s set to make more great live appearances this summer with the announcement of new All Ages shows being added to the ‘Better’ Tour with support from Arno Faraji.

“Her electro pop influence is reminiscent of her musical and geographical neighbor Lorde’s Pure Heroine, with liberal use of synthesizers and vocal harmonies building up to bright choruses.” - Stereogum
“Mallrat has a sleepy delivery and a knack for singsong melodies that grow hypnotically familiar.” - The New York Times
“Australian talent Mallrat is a truly special prospect." - NME
