Mallrat Returns With New Song “Rockstar”
- Melbourne-based alt-pop singer-songwriter Grace Shaw, aka Mallrat returned with a new song “Rockstar”.
It is her first music since her 2019's EP“ Driving Music”. She wrote the song in her part-time home of Los Angeles. Produced by Tommy English.
The accompanying music video was animated by Sharin Yofitasari.
“I feel like 'Rockstar' reminds me of a mix between Lana Del Rey, Kacey Musgraves and Violent Soho,” Mallrat says of the song in a statement. “All through my teens (and obviously still) I loved the early Violent Soho albums self-titled and Hungry Ghost – those two albums I've listened to a lot and I think that's seeped its way into the track. A lot of the songs I've been writing lately have been me realising my power.
I wrote the chorus first, it has a completely different attitude on its own, but when you listen in the context of the verses and the really aggressive guitar outro it completely flips the perspective of everything. When I wrote the rest of the song a year later, I was feeling a lot more sure of myself. It's interesting how time can reframe things that you still think and are still true but just give them a whole new house to sit in.
I've always thought of myself a whisper singer and not even a very good singer, but when I listen to the chorus of 'Rockstar' it reminds me that I have more range than I probably even give myself credit for.”
