Critic Praises:

"While Mallrat circles through her melodies, the ingenious track finds endless variety in three chords, morphing imperceptibly from simple guitar strumming to three-chord rock to quasi-orchestral splendor; Mallrat isn’t as nonchalant as her voice might seem.” - New York Times

"A singer, songwriter and rapper who records under the name Mallrat, Grace Shaw is taking off internationally on the strength of "Better," an irrepressibly sparkling slice of dreamy pop. The only downside to "Better": If you crank it on the year's first spring day, your heart may actually explode with happiness. (Still, though, you should try it)" - NPR Music

"Her debut EP, Uninvited, featuring a title track that is a pure 40 proof distilled scream-it-in-your-car bop on which she sings about wishing she were uninvited from a lame party, with an immortally banging chorus ("get me off the list, get me, get me off the list") was ungodly catchy. But with her sophomore EP In The Sky (to be clear, catchy as ever) showed a new emotional and stylistic range, veering into indie, hip-hop and electro-pop, and scored her opening tour spots with Post Malone and Maggie Rogers…" - The Paper

"Her confidence and wide-eyed ambition feel like a rare, special antidote to an industry that so often looms with gatekeeping and other forms of impending doom" - The FADER

“There’s a new anti-in-crowd anthem on the block: “Uninvited,” an infectious electro-pop gem from Australian newcomer Mallrat” – Vice’s NOISEY

"The middleground between acoustic bedroom-pop and radio-ready floor-fillers that Miley Cyrus is desperately trying to find right now.” - High Snobiety

"Australia’s Mallrat has been generating all kinds of heat with razor-sharp singles “For Real” and “Uninvited.” The 19-year-old continues to impress with bittersweet bop “Better,” which sounds warm and loved-up on the first listen. However, like all good alt-pop songs, there’s despair lurking just beneath the surface.” - Idolator

"Aussie sensation Mallrat is back with her first release of the year and it's a beauty. "Better" is a laid-back pop song that marks a new direction for the Brisbane teenager.” - Indie Shuffle

“The 16-year-old Aussie pop/rap/electro hybrid Mallrat makes fun, flirty jaunts on a sliding spectrum of singing, sing-song rap, and rapping.” – Stereogum

“The diverse collection is unified by the 17-year old’s razor sharp lyricism” – Rolling Stone (Australia)

“While there’s an innocent infliction to her voice, it certainly suits the catchy, feel-good vibe of the production, making "Uninvited" arguably Mallrat's best single yet.” - Indie Shuffle

"Mallrat really has it all and is most certainly going to be one to watch.” - The Music (Australia)

“She is the self-proclaimed "Hannah Montana of the rap game" and it shows.” - Urban Outfitters

“Brisbane’s teen star MC” – i-D Magazine

 “We suspect that it’s only a matter of time until people become familiar with her track here as a certified cult hit.” – Hilly Dilly

“Suicide Blonde” shows off two skill sets: an angelic voice and charming, leftfield delivery.” – Pigeons & Planes
