In just over a month, we’ll be making our annual pilgrimage to SXSW in Austin. On our list of must see artists is Mallrat, the young Brisbane artist who’s making a fresh imprint on the electronica and pop scene with her creative and innovative music. Mallrat returns today with a new sleek shimmering gem named UFO, featuring fellow Australian Allday on hip hop inflected vocals. The captivating song only serves as more proof that Mallrat is going to have a huge 2018. As UFO progresses, it takes on a cosmic and intergalactic velour with darker synths and heavier beats. It’s a hypnotic and melodic venture deep into Mallrat’s edgy and bold sound. We can’t wait to hear the song live next month.

19 year old pop-rap sensation Mallrat has been one of our favorite emerging artists out of Australia. Her creative compositions certainly stand high above the crowd with their witty edge and candy coated tartness. On the heels of her excellent EP Uninvited comes fresh new earworm Better, a sleek shimmering electro pop piece that might be her most dreamy melodious offering to date. It’s a softer, more honeyed side of Mallrat we’re hearing, and it’s just as alluring and hooking. Better is a fragrant whiff of end of summer nostalgia, a blissful enthraller that takes us back to our youth. Speaking of the track, Mallrat noted: “I wrote Better over a year ago but it’s taken most of this time to get it sounding exactly how it does in my head, so thanks for waiting so patiently for new music. My dad says it’s his favourite song which makes me very excited to share it with everyone."

When I think about rush hour, I’m normally reminded of how horrible it is to be stuck in bumper to bumper traffic when all you want to do is get home and dance to some fabulous tunes. There’s no doubt that anguish could be alleviated by Oh Boy’s Rush Hour, an effervescent chiming, crystalline sparkling electronic track featuring Australian artist Mallrat on light, perky vocals. Oh Boy, a rising producer from Sydney, has crafted a bubbly playful future pop confection in Rush Hour. He’d previously united with Mallrat and Donatachi on Bunny Island, a tune I’m still much addicted to nearly a year since it first surfaced. Stream that lithe skipping, airy puckish gem below.

Creamy skittering, woozy swooning brilliance abounds on Shoulders, the latest from Brisbane producer Golden Vessel, who enlists buddies Elkkle and Mallrat to round out the track with satiny smooth, feathery light vocals. Shoulders is the next single from Golden Vessel’s upcoming EP. Hip hop, R&B, and soul combine with glitchy textured, wonky shifting electronica on the luxuriant cantering jam. Those of you in Australia can catch the gifted producer when he hits plays a string of shows on the east coast later this month. Find out more about his Shoulders tour, here.

I can literally listen to Baby Spiders all day long, and it happens to come from Australia’s Allday too, who just dropped his Speeding album today featuring a bevy of fantastic collaborations with the likes of Japanese Wallpaper and, as in this case, Mallrat. Though I don’t have arachnophobia, I can’t say I usually associate Baby Spiders with a silky gliding electronic opus like Allday’s song. I can’t help but welcome these particular ‘baby spiders’ with open arms, or rather, open ears and heart. Not only does the song involve Mallrat on enchanting guest vocals, it’s also been produced by none other than Feki! Baby Spiders is a cool effortless confluence of magnificent talent, an R&B and hip hop meets chill electronica beauty that I find rather lifting and cathartic. Allday’s new album Speeding is available today on iTunes.

I’m overjoyed that within a few short months, Australian newcomer Mallrat has drummed up such buzz over her effervescent emulsion of nimble electronica and cheeky pop. Mallrat even features on a brand new tune from fellow Australians, Oh Boy and Donatachi, a fittingly named lithe skipping number named Bunny Island. If you’re fond of SOPHIE, PC Music, Shawn Wasabi, and Kero Kero Bonito, this one will be right up your alley, but with an extra dose of puckish carbonation and chiptune youthfulness. I can totally picture a pastel hued music video full of animated bunny rabbits hopping around joyfully to Bunny Island. Download the track from Toneden, courtesy of Mad Decent sub label Good Enuff.

The Justin Lin directed Tokyo Drift edition of The Fast and the Furious film franchise is no doubt a crowning hallmark of the series, launching it into massive success after the first films had already drummed up a huge following. Tokyo Drift is now the title of a popping jam, too, and from none other than fast rising 16 year old Australian artist Mallrat, whom I’m happy to see buzzing spectacularly after we first shared her music a few months back. On Tokyo Drift, Mallrat delivers more of her airy brisk brand of urban electronic pop. The song isn’t quite hip hop, nor pop, nor electronica… It’s an ethereal charming mixture of all three that doesn’t really lean one way or the other. Tokyo Drift, produced by Rey Reel, is a slow waltzing gem that channels slivers of Kiiara, Terror Jr., Miley Cyrus, and Elohim.

I was absolutely ecstatic when I saw Mallrat’s For Real going viral on the hype charts not long after IHM shared the tune two plus weeks ago. I’m ready to see the young Australian talent’s new song Uninvited do the same. Like For Real, Uninvited is a contagious snapping, cheeky piquant blend of electronica, pop, and hip hop. It bounces crisply, a playful airy, fizzy brisk delight. At production duty are Casper Zazz and Tigerilla once again. It’s obvious the three make a superb combination with this follow up to Not Real. Uninvited is the title track from Mallrat’s forthcoming EP, out tomorrow, July 29th.
