We caught up with MALLRAT at THIS THAT!
Brisbane native MALLRAT, the musical project Grace Shaw, has treated us all with her new single, Surprise Me. On the track, the singer has teamed up with American rapper Azealia Banks.
Of the release, MALLRAT shares: "It's so true that the music you listen to when you're little really shapes you. Or at least it hangs out in your subconscious for a very long time. The first album I ever bought with my own money was Broke With Expensive Taste. Azealia Banks was truly the best to work with. It felt like she really cared, which you don't always get with feature artists; often it can feel like they're fulfilling an obligation. Maybe I'm biased, but hers is one of the most iconic and memorable verses I've ever heard."
Exploding onto the scene five years ago, MALLRAT has captivated audiences around the nation with hit tracks like Better and Groceries, and her collaborations, UFO with Allday and Nobody's Home with Basenji. Her 2019 smash hit Charlie, saw the singer elevate her songwriting to new levels. The song earned MALLRAT a top three postition on the triple j Hottest 100 and saw her make her debut appearance on US television.
Surprise Me is out now!
