Mallrat is Grace Shaw, a singer and songwriter of hip-hop-infused electropop from Australia. She took the name from the 2013 Orwells song "Mallrats (La La La)." Born and raised in Brisbane, Grace began uploading anthemic laptop tunes as a 16-year-old in 2015.
She quickly became a regular at the top of the Hype Machine charts, and in mid-2016 she released her debut EP, Uninvited. Calling her "the Hannah Montana of the rap game," Nettwerk gave it a label release in early 2017, and her song "For Real" was licensed by Google for a smartphone commercial. In early 2018 she issued the more atmospheric "UFO," featuring Allday, and made her U.S. debut at South by Southwest. ~ Marcy Donelson, Rovi
