Mallrat – For Real

Part rap, part weird electro-pop, Mallrat‘s latest single For Real is one of the oddest track we heard this year. Using synthesizers, sharp percussions and ’80 dance-tinged piano chords this 17-year-old artist from Brisbane, Australia has created a colorful melody over which she sheds light on her versatility, switching from singing to rapping in a blink of an eye. She is a truly unique artist, hard to compare to anyone out there.

Speaking on the track to Stereogum, Mallrat said: “I’m not sure if ‘For Real’ is a happy song or a sad song but I hope people can attach it to some memory and decide for themselves.
