“Hannah Montana of the rap game.”
It’s the tongue-in- cheek moniker that Mallrat (aka Grace Shaw) gave herself. It’s the best description that the then 16-year- old could ascribe to the bright, bouncy pop she made inspired by her rap heroes like Allday, Drake and Kanye.
Much of her huge appeal can be attributed to the seemingly effortless and irresistible approach Mallrat has to her craft. Whether it’s her music, her effervescent stage shows, her bold and striking fashion choices, or her witty and funny online presence (with strong cameos from her dog/co-star on the rise Charlie), it has all combined to amass a huge audience from Melbourne to Mexico City. With refreshingly honest observations of day-to- day life, her relatable and confessional lyrics, her penchant for cooking up simple yet sticky melodies, there’s not much that separates Mallrat from her fans, as she makes it all seem so easy.
Her second EP In The Sky (out June 1 via Nettwerk), displays a maturity that can only be obtained through soaking up the experiences of the last three years and channeling them with the refinement and self-assurance that Mallrat always seems to have.
And as for Mallrat – well, she just wants to make music that you can relate to. “I hope that it makes someone feel more relaxed after a weird day and they can just feel calm. I think it’s amazing when music can make you feel something and I’ve tried to do that.”
