Mallrat provides softer yet just as catchy tunes on 'In The Sky'

The kind of music you find yourself nodding along to in public without even realising.

The second EP from Brisbane teen Mallrat is a continuation of the catchy, poppy tunes she gave us on 2016’s Uninvited, but with a slightly softer sound.

The five-track record is comprised of upbeat songs that bring a smile to your face and get stuck in your head – the kind of music you find yourself nodding along to in public without even realising.

Tracks like ‘Better’ and ‘UFO’ featuring Allday have already done the radio rounds, but every tune off this EP could be a hit single, particularly ‘Groceries’ with it’s acoustic intro and rhythmic clapping throughout.

Mallrat’s songs are dripping in teenage nostalgia  which makes sense considering she’s only 19  and there’s definitely more of a dream girl vibe to this EP. It’s easy to get lost in the sweetness of the music without paying much attention to the lyrics, but they really are worth a closer listen, and provide an insight into the banalities of suburban teenage life.

The girl has some serious talent and the formula for a catchy track down pat, hopefully she’ll hit us with a full album sometime in the not-so-distant future.
