Mallrat – artist of the month
Grace Shaw is a Brisbane musician, rapper and singer who performs as Mallrat – and her latest track (‘Nobody’s Home’, with Basenji) is a Nightlife favourite.
Having only released her debut track in 2015 after leaving high school, Mallrat has exploded onto the international music scene. An American tour with Maggie Rogers, number 7 in the 2018 Triple J Hottest 100 and sold-out Australian tours have all been achieved off the back of just two EPs.
With this new single, Mallrat has pushed her alt-pop song writing even further.
“This song started as a voice memo, recorded in a bathroom in Japan, about a year and a half ago,” said Mallrat in an interview with Idolator. “My friend was sleeping in the next room so I turned on the shower and sung really quietly so that she wouldn’t hear me recording. About six months later I met up with Basenji in Sydney and the song started to take shape.”
Check out the new video released on Nightlife this week. You can also listen to Mallrat on Spotify!
